18 years to go until January 2038.

Over ten years ago I created a more or less random appointment in my calendar for a day in January 2045. It survived system migration over the years and it always makes me smile when I see it pop up while syncing to a new device or when importing into a new calendar app. But I guess the iCalendar and CalDAV standards are not our biggest problem wrt the Y2038 problem.

It shows #Apple's #co2 #footprint in 2018 for its products and you can see that 79% is due to manufacturing and transportation - and only 19% for its actual use.

Try to keep this in mind next time you think about replacing your device with a new one - or to keep using your current device for a little bit longer.

Ich habe jeweils einen Stapel Aufkleber „Rassistische Kackscheiße“ und „Sexistische Kackscheiße“ abzugeben. Lange Kante etwa 20 cm. Habe erstmal keine Verwendung mehr dafür, weil ich nicht mehr in Deutschland lebe. Mag die jemand beim geschenkt bekommen?
