Happy 1500000000



Today the Unix Timestamp clicked over to 1500000000 marking the date and time as Friday July 14 2017 02:40:00 GMT

The whole thing took only a second, but geeks around the world, myself included, were watching their monitors as the number rolled over.

Unix timestamp is created by counting the number of seconds to a particular date and time from 12am January 1st 1970, the UNIX timestamp epoch.

There have been a few, “Check this out”, timestamps that were ‘memorable’ over the years.

Here are another couple that you may have missed:

  • The time stamp hit 1000000000 back on Sunday September 9 2001 at 01:46:40 GMT. Of course, 999999999 was just one second earlier.
  • 1111111111 happened on Friday March 18 2005 at 01:58:31 GMT
  • The classic timestamp, featuring all 10 digits, 1234567890, was on Friday February 13th 2009 at 23:31:30 GMT.

Some Timestamps to look forward to:

  • Countdown to 1515151515, Friday January 5 2018 11:25:15 GMT
  • Countdown to 1600000000, Sunday September 13 2020 12:26:40 GMT

I use timestamps a lot as part of my day gig.
A site I find very handy and you might like to have a play too is: https://www.epochconverter.com
