Only 14 years until the year 2038 problem, aka Y2038, Y2K38, Y2K38 superbug or the Epochalypse. This is a time computing problem that leaves some computer systems unable to represent times after 03:14:07 UTC on 19 January 2038.

There is also a GPS week number rollover in 2038 which will occur between November 20 and 21, 2038. This is not related to the year 2038 issue but is still important. GPS is used for global positioning and time calculation.

I enjoyed that short film "Life in Miniature." Fascinating!

The life in Miniature shows talent and accumulated tricks for making them look real. That said, what good are they, what can the be used for besides dusting?

The rock homes are unique, but there is a link there to a cottage in MN with annual property taxes of $28,300.

Crimes against Food was fun just don't read the comments. Raging self-righteous know-it-alls insulting people they don’t know over something that doesn’t affect them in the least.
