Happy Unixversary!

A Very Important Arbitrary Milestone for all you Unix fans out there:

As of 6:31:30PM ET this afternoon it will officially be 1234567890 Unix time, which started at zero and has been counting seconds since the stroke of midnight on January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds. We suggest you put on your best watch or other geek chic and enjoy that one fateful second of sequential bliss — as the story goes, 1234567891, party over, oops, out of time.

Actual 1234567890 party locations can be found here. None in Pittsburgh, alas.

    This one had totally passed me by. I’m not used to seeing Unix times in decimal form. I’ll just have to remember to bow to my Thompson and Ritchie altar at the appropriate time.
