Here's a great explanation about "1234567890 day" from TimeStamp1234567890.com (Especially For The N.O.N-N.E.R.D.)
What the hell are you talking about?
We are talking about the "UNIX Time". The UNIX is a number defined as the number of seconds elapsed since midnight Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) of January 1, 1970. You can easily calculate or save times with this number. Read more wikipedia
Does TIMESTAMP 1234567890 mean the end of mankind?
Probably not... but you never know.
Can I buy TIMESTAMP 1234567890?Do we really need timestamp?
Return to topic 1. You can do a lot of funny things with a timestamp - but buying?!
Absolutely yes! Without timestamp you can't do any time in computers
The countdown to this dubiously important occasion (actually a "count-up") has been awaited by many nerds (read Navin) with almost as much expectation as Y2K. Why?? Nobody really knows!! For me atleast, its just another occasion when "the higher power" has simply shown, once again, through UNIX this time, the beauty and symmetry of the universe, and as a wannabe Theoretical Physicist/L337 C0dEr/Life-Hacker, I do appreciate this in a purely artistic sense. Plus, an occasion like this calls for another late night geek party with CS gaming, and new "There's no place like 127.0.0.1" Tees......... So I'm not complaining!!! :)
Also, such events give rise to crazy sites like 1234567890Day.com (which actually provides links to a 12345678920 day party in India....... at Patna unfortunately!!!)
Anyway, in case you wanted to get to know when this landmark event occured, you can simply check out the countdown (correction: I mean "up") at CoolEpochCountdown.com
May The Force Be With You!!!! :)
