That sounds good.  I'm sure the ITS hackers in 2155 will be able to think
of something clever to solve the problem then.  TOPS-20's date format
dies at the last 1/3 second of Wednesday, 7 August 2576 GMT (here on the
west coast, just before 5PM PDT), so we have almost 589 years to worry
about that.

We'll need some new CPU's though.  36-bits are decidedly out of fashion
at Stanford, but perhaps there are some MIT VLSI hackers who might want
to make a PDP-10 on a chip?
