Epoch time on main forum page

8 posts in this topic

While I am a geek and can tell instantly that 1286410479 is today at 8:14PM and 39 seconds other people might not be so quick to know. It has been a little while since the upgrade. Any chance of wrapping that in a nice date function?

This is Chrome on Windows 7. It is just the forum index page. Individual forum pages show the time correctly.

We had an issue on the first day with the skin being coded for the old version. It was quickly fixed, somehow you seem to have that old file in your cache. Do you have this problem in other browsers?

It also could be that you're using the wrong skin. Change it to bullet at the bottom left. - I had the same issue with Chrome on Windows 7.

Ok, I'll bite. I've been looking at that number for 5 full minutes and still have no idea how you get 8:14:39 out of that number.

Epoch time, also known as Unix time or POSIX time, is the number of seconds elapsed since January 1, 1970 UTC, excluding leap seconds. Petey may be an ├╝ber-geek and likely recognized the timestamp for what it was, but unless he's got a calculator for a brain, I doubt he was able to instantly perform the conversion in his head. (And if he did, I want to know how he did it, because that sounds sweet.)
