1073741824 is a bidemical number. Its reciprocal is 93132257461547851565 times a very small power of ten.

Karl: (POSIX says that) Unix counts time in UTC. So, by 2^30 seconds I meant 2^30 seconds of UTC, which is more than 2^30 seconds of TAI (of "real time" on Earth if you will). Or, if you will: Unix turns 2^30 non-leap seconds (plus a few leap seconds).

Are Leap Seconds counted in these 2^30 seconds?

À propos de date charnière: le ban d'usenet est bientôt levé, non?

Pour ceux que cela intéresse: ADSL free c'est *vraiment* rapide: le zip de mozilla 1.6 qui fait 10 MB est chargé en moins de 22 secondes…

donc 460 kB/s ou encore 4 Mb/s avec les bits de contrôle. Or la vitesse annoncée est "seulement" de 2 Mb/s. Pas de comression logicielle possible, a priori: le sur-zippage a un effet infime. Ça change de club-internet qui parvenait péniblement à 65 kB/s…
