      bobjonkman favorited something by lxo: what's most incredible about this date representation is that it was introduced after Y2K. it wouldn't have worked up to [19]99 think about it. someone implemented that after all the many years of preparation and patching decades-old systems for Y2K, knowing (or, worse, without realizing) that it had at most […]

      Don't get me wrong, I think Foundation is one of the greatest SF stories ever written. And I hadn't heard there was a series, must find out when and where it airs... !SciFi @clacke
