I'd be more worried about the heat death of your computer, it's likely
to be sooner. How many people have access to a computer that'll still
be running in ten years, much less a thousand? And while a thousand
years is extremely large, it still falls pitifully short of
infinity[1], or even the heat death of the universe.
