You’re likely wondering what I’m talking about as this is Friday the 13th. For UNIX/LINUX nerds, today is a very important day. It is1234567890 day. Today is when Unix time will reach the time of 1234567890 or 1.2 billion seconds since midnight Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) of January 1, 1970.

Yes, we need to get out more. We admit that. But it is cool.

If you want to join the countdown (or more accurately the count up), here’s a link to a count up clock.

Enjoy the day!
