I've searched but could't find the answer so forgive me if it's already been asked. I'm writing a series f short stories strung out over Millions of hears (sci-fi/fantasy) I was wondering how far back can I go?

Not that I need any dates beyond those, but I was just wondering on what causes the limits. Is it the variable type that's being used? Or some other limiting factor.

Hi, Yes it is based on the variable type being used, it is a 64-bit integer storing seconds. Jess
