dates with SelfSign certificate and openssl

I was playing around with self-signings  certificates on openssl   and notice a day  typo  in the signed certificate. My goal was to see how many days can you set a certificate for.

OpenSSL> version
OpenSSL 0.9.8zg 14 July 2015

( notice the date and the cert import failure in  F5 BIGIP LTM the appliance was probably say WTF  51 days in  OCT?????  )

Image result for laugh

2799 years !

So finally I was able to have the certificate signed and successfully imported. Look at the dates now.
