The number (1108741705) is a unix time stamp (number of seconds since 
1st jan 1970)  use this webs ite to convert it to a readable date 
(http://www.4webhelp.net/us/timestamp.php), the number you have provided 
tells me that your password will expire on (1108741705 translates to 
*Friday, February 18^th 2005, 15:48:25 (GMT))

if you dont want it to expire create a date for 30 years time or so?

bash# perl -e 'print time+946080000;'

this should always give you a unixtime stamp in 30 years time!

This will make your password expire in 2035 !!
