How did you get that?

8*8 is 64.  I didn't see anything about using two of them.

POSIX uses 32 bits of seconds and 32 bits of nanoseconds.  That will wrap in 
2038.  Using all nanoseconds gets a few more bits so the overall range will 
be a bit bigger.  (Whether it's enough bigger is another matter.)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
