    Any epoch partiers today?

    The nerds in my office are planning to have a party today when the UNIX timestamp reaches 1234567890. Are there any other people that geeky out there?

    Why did no one notice this when it was (0)123456789 seconds?

    No programming language is perfect. There is not even a single best language; there are only languages well suited or perhaps poorly suited for particular purposes.

    Maybe they did. That timestamp would have occurred a few years before I was born.
