So last Friday the Unix Epoch reached 1234567890! This happened at 4:31 PM.
Of course, working in the programming department of a web development company, I was not the only person aware of this momentous occasion. We managed to rife up enough excitement that, by the time the final countdown began, we have the time stamp up on the projected warboard on the wall, with everyone was standing up watching it.
When the final countdown commenced, everyone counted down together. When we reached the sequential Epoch time, the time that has been printed on everyone’s keyboards for years past and to come, everyone cheered, my manager flashed the lights on and off, and I rang the gong a bunch.
This, coming from someone who slept through last New Years.
Let’s face it. I’m a geek.
