Unix time

At 15:30:08 UTC on Sun, 4 December 292,277,026,596[16][17] 64-bit versions of the Unix time stamp will cease to work, as it will overflow the largest value that can be held in a signed 64-bit number. For these systems, the next second will once again be incorrectly indicated as Thursday, 1 January 1970 at 00:00:00. This is not anticipated to pose a problem, however, as this is considerably longer than the time it would take the Sun to theoretically expand to a red giant and swallow the earth.
