An Auspicious Moment in Time

It looks like about 6:31:30 PM EST on Friday the 13th (you can use the command in the article to find the exact time on your system) you should have a single malt ready in hand.  Windows users need not bother.

Beware: UNIX Time to Read 1234567890 On Friday the 13th

Forget the Mayans and their silly 2012 doomsday scenario. The real end of the world will happen because of that most venerable of operating systems: UNIX.

That’s because next Friday, UNIX time will read 1234567890. Scary! And, it just so happens that this event will coincide with one of the more superstitious days on our calendar, Friday the 13th. Scarier!
