Hello:

                Kelly Kinkade on Quora here
(https://www.quora.com/To-fix-the-year-2038-problem-why-cant-we-simply-chang
e-the-epoch-time-to-something-like-January-1-2000-instead-of-1970-You-do-rea
lize-1970-was-48-years-ago) wrote that the length of the NTP timestamp had
been changed from 64 to 128 bits as a solution to the 2038 epoch problem.  I
had not read or heard anything before about such a change.

 

                Does anyone who reads this email list know anything about
changing the length of the NTP timestamp?
