On Tuesday, 19 January 2038, at 03:14:07 many applications using UNIX/POSIX/Linux type systems will experience date failures unless fixed. Regardless of operating system this includes many applications and languages derived from UNIX, such as the entire family of "C" languages.
This "Year 2038 Problem" is gaining attention in the computer world. Similar to Year-2000, but with different everything, it can be very cheap to repair now but gets more expensive as time goes by.

My technical work in heading the reporting and repair side of AT&T Labs Year-2000 program for self-maintained equipment gives Gilbert a huge edge in understanding, locating, repairing, and training people across a broad scope of this problem. Literally I've done this type of stuff before.

In addition to technical skills, experiences include working with diverse people across corporate structure as well as customers, including international customers.
