CODE: time computation is limited

From: Janvier D. Anonical (
Date: 11/30/00

The date computation seems limited to the length of the data type. In the
mud_time_passed() under utility.c, the data type of secs is long. Since this
is the case, when secs exceeds the data type range, an overflow will occur
thus limiting the date to a certain value (in my case, when I tested it, I
got only
to year 776 so that mud_time_passed() can give me a correct value).

Is there any way to fix this?
