UNIX Clock reaches 1234567890 tonight!!

I recently saw an article about how tonight at 23:31:30 GMT the unix clock used in any unix system will reach 1234567890 due to it being a 32 bit interger clock, however I know that OS X Leopard was made 64 bit dunno if this means the clock was adjusted as well.
Here is the full article http://technology.timesonline.co.uk/...cle5727189.ece

Sweet, I feel so geek. I might just have to do something in celebration.

As of Mac OS X 10.5, time_t is 32 bits under both x86 and ppc.
