Well, you know, we have to start thinking about what will happen
when the century ticks.  I'm determined that TOPS-20 on PANDA will
see it tick, which means fixing any bugs that have two-digit years.
The question is, how will ITS handle it?

I think it will be damn funny if our 36-bit "dinosaurs" just tick
the century and keep on smiling, while every Unix system in the
world crashes!!!
