12:37 pm - what's that about #, then?
noted to me by prog:

Unix turns 1.2 billion seconds old this afternoon. When? Exactly at 4:20 pm EST (okay, okay, GMT -5).

Oh, it does make us giggle.

I remember when 1 billion rolled around. I remember, because Ikonboard fucking *broke* because it used string comparison (not numeric comparison) to sort timestamps, and all new posts went to the END of the forums.

ikonboard: I have fucked up each and every one of my posts. This is the resulting mess.

Not bloody likely, dear.

I remember several times really wanting to know what your post had said... can you believe I genuinely care about what you think? Clearly I need better sensibilities. :P

This is easily the geekiest thing I've seen all day.
