Epoch win!

Note: My apologies; this got briefly posted on the 12th by accident. I took it down and reposted it on the 13th, the correct day. Sorry!

Do you know Unix? If you do, then today at 18:31:30 (Eastern US) is an interesting time. If you have a Mac or Unix machine, type this into your terminal prompt:

perl -e ‘print scalar localtime(1234567890),”\n”;’


I know, dorky. But then, whenever I see a digital clock reading “10:54”, I always say “Crab Nebula time!”.

If you thought you could outdork me, give up now.
