That is, 13 Feb. 2009 at 11:31 PM and 30 seconds UTC/GMT, to some of you; Feb. 13 2009 at 11:31 PM and 30 seconds UTC/GMT to others, and go get a date/time convertor for the rest of y'all. The numerical representation used internally by most Unix systems to denote the current date and time, will read 1234567890 decimal, and if I'm correct: 499602d2 hex, 11145401322 octal, and 1001001100101100000001011010010 binary. In effect, the unix based machines that make so much of the internet go round, their clocks will read "1234567890" if you count by 10s.
Most Computer Operating Systems I know of, count the seconds since midnight of a date of interest to the developers or the userbase, then convert that to the date / time you see on your system clocks. UNIX used 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z (midnight of January 1, 1970), counting in seconds of UTC - leapseconds. MS-DOS used an epoch of Janurary 1, 1980, and Windows NT systems like XP and Vista I believe: use January 1, 1601, but Windows NT to young to have been a part of the early Internet, which now allows all of us to enjoy our games together! So in honour of the unix time_t value coming up.... and computer geeks everywhere....
Happy 1234567890 day
Hmm, it's 1234512179 last time I looked at time(), so there's still time to celebrate for the next ~15 hours xD
