It's the "within the next 25 years" part that makes the quote funny. Representing time with a signed int doesn't become a problem for a long time, so Satoshi was being sarcastic.

Am I the only one who finds this quote funny? Maybe it needs more context.

Necro!

It turns out that this post contains an error; representing time with a signed int will in fact become a problem in only 25 years—exactly what Satoshi said.

Thread necromancy is better than starting a new thread, because things are less fragmented. Plus, this is the newbie section, and more topics on the same subject are exactly what it needs less of.

There are 10 kinds of people, those that understand binary, and those that don't.  Cheesy

There are 10 kinds of people, those that know binary and those that aren't really bothered by this quote not ending the way they thought it would.

Wouldn't that be 4 kinds of people?

10 in binary is equivalent to decimal 2

100 in binary is equivalent to decimal 4

Please explain, because I'm still missing it.

Unless you are being a grammar nazi and viewing it as a list of 3 items instead of a clause followed by a list of two items because of the usage of a comma rather than a colon.  If that's it then you should work on your comedy.  If that's not it, you should still work on your comedy since it needs explanation.

Meh... Ok

It was the irrelevance of the number itself. 10 kinds of people, etc... at first glance you divide 5 get it, 5 don't get it. Same with 4, 2 get it, 2 don't get it.

Better yet would be: There is 1 kind of person that gets binary, the one that does and the one that doesn't.

My personal take on this joke:

There is 1 type of person in this world: those who expected a different joke.

In any case, is 20 years up so I can finally sign the int?

Shh, not so loud! You can sign it, but only if you don't tell Satoshi.
