I'm sure you are already aware of the int limitations on the Date Time Stamp. I also read that there was a 64bit timestamp ready, but not activated/available. 

When is that going to be activated?

And what are the new limitations as far as Date/Time going to
be with that?


Expected result:
Expected Calendar app to go past 1-19-2037 and back further than 12-1901

Actual result:
It didn't

I have this same problem in php 5.2.10. Here is the chunk of code that I used.

Last Checked: <input disabled type="text" name="txt" value="<?echo "".date("m-d-Y",strtotime($datech));?>" maxlength= "10" size="10">

When there is a date stored in the database that has a year that is higher than 2037 this code displays 12-31-1969 as the date. Even though the database has a different date, such as having the year 3000. I do realize that the year 3000 is a few years away, but the issue will be a very large problem in say: 2038

I hope this information is helpful. If you need any more information please ask.
