1234567890

This Friday at 6:31 (exactly when this post was put up) is 1234567890 Day.  At 6:31 pm EST the Unix time will have been 1234567890.  I have no idea what that means exactly but I did find this description online:

"Unix time [is] defined as the number of seconds elapsed since midnight Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds. It is widely used not only on Unix-like operating systems but also in many other computing systems."

Does that explain it better?  Yeah, me niether.  But happy 123456789 day anyway
