Unix tick tocks to a million

Author: JT Smith

Wired has more coverage of the recent Unix clock rollover to 1 billion seconds: "Early Sunday morning in Greenwich, England, the clock that keeps Universal Time will strike 01:46:40 -- the 40th second of the 46th minute in the second hour of Sept. 9, 2001. That instant will be an anniversary for the Unix operating system: It marks one billion seconds since midnight on Jan. 1, 1970, which is the moment Unix computers recognize as zero-time."
