In a popular online video game (World of Warcraft) there's a friends list displaying how long since each friend is online. Recently, there's been a bug where many friends show as being offline for 41 Years. Is there any significance to this number? I checked if it matched a max int timestamp, but no suck luck.

Computer time is often measured from Jan 1 1970 (know as "the epoch"). It's been 40.5 years since then, rounded up to 41.
