Default It's 1499976221. Do you know where your epoch is?

At 02:40:00 UTC Fri Jul 14 2017, less than 25,000 seconds from now (but I plan to be asleep then), it will be 1500000000, 1.5 billion, in Unix epoch time.

(We still have a few years until it runs out - 19 Jan 2038 - at least within the range of signed 32 bit integers.)

Safari thinks that's a phone #.

That will be tonight at 7:40 pm for me. I'm sure I won't notice it.

That's so cool! Let's check some manpage to see what I have to type.
man date

date +%s
returns
1499990189


That means I can't go to bed now. Or I have to set an alarm clock. Damn. This is better than a solar eclipse.

Didn't notice. I was sleeping. 3AM comes WAY to early.

I was asleep. Doesn't matter though, I just got the current time again and now one is below the other in the console.

1499993619
1500038272

Same effect. :muahaha:
