I have gotten for the second time a text message for the 60's. any ideas???
Isn't that email ?
Btw i have got such NO SENDER, NO SUBJECT email messages before on my iPhone. On iOS 5.1.1.
If your actual system date appears as 1969 (or something similar?), it could be your OS telling you that it is not able to save this the date into hardware memory for shutdowns/restarts, so the correct date can be shown on startup.
In an old powermac, I just had to replace a dead battery on the logic board and update the system date and time, but if it is not happening in other places/system-wide, then I suspect it may be specific to the sender of that email.
Hopefully others may have better info for you.
Unix starts counting time (literally, time=0) from the unix epoch, Jan 1st, 1970. If a function returns an invalid result, it's customary to return -1. If the time parsing function fails, it is probably returning the value -1, which happens to be 11:59pm on Dec 31, 1969.
Also IIRC, the Unix time epoch runs out, after which the world will presumably end, with all computers going crazy. I thought it was something like 2023 when they have to reset the epoch start time.
I believe that you're thinking of the "Year 2038 problem" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem
Unix time isn't going to be reset, but 32-bit clock hardware will need to be fixed.
mrgraff...you're right..that's what I was remembering incorrectly.
That email thing is a glitch. I've gotten two since 2010; the most recent one was last week. They disappeared on their own.
Clearly, a computer from the 60's knew about e-mail before someone "invented" it, so the computer sent a time-traveling e-mail to you.
Text message from the 60's
Text messages, emails and photos and some contacts after updating my iphone4 to iOS 6. Hopefully a response from Apple is forthcoming!
What about them? You appear to be hijacking the thread.
As rak007 mentioned that looks like an e-mail sent to your SMS address (poorly formed e-mail). For AT&T that address is <phone firstname.lastname@example.org. Spammers use this a lot and AT&T has controls you can use to block / allow e-mail to your SMS.
