Unix Epoch + 1234567890 = Next Friday

I’m kind of an obsessive-compulsive when it comes to numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5…), so I’m fairly excited about next Friday (..6, 7, 8, 9, 10…) when Epoch time reaches 1234567890 at 18:31:30 on 13 February(…11, 12, 13, 14, 15…).  I’m sure my ADD will kick in (Oh, look.  A squirrel!) right before, but I’ll try to remember to run to a Linux box and type date +%s (…16, 17, 18, 19, 20!  Made it!).

I shake my head around sometimes and see what falls out. That's what lands on these pages.

    A similar event occured in March of 2005 when Unix time passed the 1,111,111,111 mark. I blogged about it as well as this next occurence at http://community.livejournal.com/do_ne_ge_of_cu/2607.html
