Why is the limit for numbers in autoit -9223372036854775807 through 9223372036854775807?

Some example code to prove it

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ListBoxConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
GUICreate("The number that goes on forever and forever", 425, 135, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_BORDER, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS), BitOR($WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
$Start = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Time Started:", 5, 5, 200, 17)
$Number = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Current Number: ", 5, 25, 200, 17)
$End = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Time Ended: ", 5, 45, 200, 17)
$ButtonGo = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 5, 70, 55, 25, 0)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Start")
$Buttonstop = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 70, 70, 55, 25, 0)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Stop")
$Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 135, 70, 55, 25, 0)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Exit")
GUICtrlCreateGroup("Numbers Gone Though", 210, 5, 210, 125)
$List = GUICtrlCreateList("", 215, 25, 200, 97, BitOR($LBS_NOSEL, $WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Move mouse over for more information.", 5, 115, 200, 17)
GUICtrlSetTip(-1, "The range of numbers this program can handle is -9223372036854775807 through 9223372036854775807")
GUICtrlSetState($Buttonstop, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Global $On = False
$i = 9223372036854775800

While 1
    If $On Then _Action()
WEnd

Func _Start()
    $On = True
    GUICtrlSetState($ButtonGo, $GUI_DISABLE)
    GUICtrlSetState($Buttonstop, $GUI_ENABLE)
    GUICtrlSetData($Start, "Time Started: " & @MON & "/" & @MDAY & "/" & @YEAR & " " & @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC)
    GUICtrlSetData($Number, "Current Number: ")
    GUICtrlSetData($End, "Time Ended: ")
EndFunc

Func _Stop()
    $On = False
    GUICtrlSetState($ButtonGo, $GUI_ENABLE)
    GUICtrlSetState($Buttonstop, $GUI_DISABLE)
    GUICtrlSetData($End, "Time Ended: " & @MON & "/" & @MDAY & "/" & @YEAR & " " & @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC)
EndFunc

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func _Action()
    GUICtrlSetData($Number, "Current Number: " & $i)
    GUICtrlSetData($List, $i & "|")
    $i = $i + 1
EndFunc

Yes yes yes, there it was. Youth must go, ah yes. But youth is only being in a way like it might be an animal. No, it is not just being an animal so much as being like one of these malenky toys you viddy being sold in the streets, like little chellovecks made out of tin and with a spring inside and then a winding handle on the outside and you wind it up grrr grrr grrr and off it itties, like walking, O my brothers. But it itties in a straight line and bangs straight into things bang bang and it cannot help what it is doing. Being young is like being like one of these malenky machines.
