Approaching 1234567890!

Guys, fire up your shell and type in the following and tell me what you see:

date -d @1234567890

Seriously, do it. I’ll wait.

For those of you who are lazy, or unix retarded (you should really work on that – it may one day turn into a debilitating disability) I will provide a visual aid:

Yep, it is next week! I think this calls for a celebration of some sort – after all, it is a once in a lifetime occasion. How are you guys planning to spend that day? Is anyone throwing a unix time stamp party of some sort?

Btw, if you don’t understand what is going on, please see here. If it still doesn’t make sense after that, you might be reading the wrong blog.

Also, isit1234567890yet.com?

    Well, I didn’t do anything for Thu Mar 17 17:58:31 PST 2005, so I probably won’t for Fri Feb 13 15:31:30 PST 2009. Of course, I’m pretty sure that it’s always a once-in-a-lifetime occasion when timestamps are involved ;)

    Way to spoil my fun here. :(

    I missed 1111111111 too. I also regret missing 1000000000. Perhaps 1234567890 will be more festive.

    I will probably announce it on IRC and we’ll have a virtual party, but I don’t have any real-life friends who are geeky enough to appreciate it :(

    @freelancer: Yeah, very true. I’m actually wondering how many people that I know IRL would actually give a flying fuck about this. Not that many…
