I was inspecting the list of timers in a complete memory dump and found that in x64 W2K8 R2 (it may be also in other versions) there is a timer set to fire for the end of our century 2001 – 2100:

1: kd> !timer Dump system timers     fffff80001c31b80   f690c4d5 0064364d [12/31/2099 23:00:00.510]  nt!ExpCenturyDpcRoutine (DPC @ fffff80001c31bc0) […]

Its disassembly shows at that time the following work item will be executed:

1: kd> uf nt!ExpCenturyDpcRoutine   fffff800`01ae81ab 488d0dae991400  lea     rcx,[nt!ExpCenturyWorkItem (fffff800`01c31b60)]

I don’t want to dig myself far into the details here. May be someone from MS provides some comments what we should expect at the turn of the century? What should I tell my children to expect if they still run the OS?
