Hello There,

I've noticed the uptime command on my mac was reporting an incorrect
number of days (18801 instead of 37).
The uptime command is from brew originally.

which -a uptime

and I could reproduce with a compiled version of coreutils :

cd /tmp
curl -L https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/coreutils/coreutils-8.32.tar.xz | tar -x
cd coreutils-8.32
./configure --prefix=/tmp/coreutils --without-gmp --without-selinux
make install

 $  /tmp/coreutils/bin/uptime
 17:21:21  up 18801 days 14:37,  3 users,  load average: 2.37, 2.68, 2.67

The native uptime command from OSx seems to work :
 $  /usr/bin/uptime
17:28  up 37 days,  7:43, 3 users, load averages: 2.71 2.44 2.50

current date is correct :

$ date
