Tonight we finally reached “1234567890″ as Unix time. If you run a Unix or Linux machine try the following command:
$ date -d @1234567890
Sat 14. Feb 00:31:30 CET 2009
Note: Due to the Unix date function (since 1972) is not calculating the astronomical time but calendar time (e.g. leap year/second) 1234567890 seconds after 01-01-1970 was actually at 0:30:56.

- Humor: Council extends year to 367 days
- Duvet-Dayz: 1000 Posts!
A town in the UK will have 367 days this year – at least on their official calendar. They spent almost USD 10,000 on the calendars and provided it to 9,500 homes without having noticed that one day was printed twice and another one invented. Unfortunately only one of the days is on the weekend…
Finally, after more than two years and almost 450,000 spam messages received, here it is: Our 1000nd blog post!
We did a break last year for almost four months, but have many plans to expand this place and hope we will get the opportunity to share it with all of you.
Many thanks to all our readers and we hope you will continue coming back to this blog.
