Is there such a word? Because I just pinged someone on IRC freenode, and got this:

Reply time from [insert username]: 18446744073709551606 seconds

I put the number into google:

18,446,744,073,709,551,606 seconds = 584,554,531 millenium

There is a megaannum (Ma) which is one million years.
There is a gigaannum (Ga) which is one billion years.
There is a teraannum (Ta) which is equal to one trillion years.

It sort of just goes on forever.

Ahh, the power of SI prefixes and the metric system.
