Originally posted by unixfreak So do you mean its 1091482530 seconds??? or does each number mean anything like date, timezone, etc???
Now is there a way for me to convert this on my Windows machine? If so, how?
Or even a calculator perhaps?
1. Yes, it means seconds since Jan 1, 1970.
2. I don't understand what you mean by "convert this on my Windows machine", because the current time/date is not dependent on whether you are running Linux or Windows. To say it another way, both Windows and Linux keep track of time, it's just that Linux borrows the Unix standard of measuring the amount of time (in seconds) that has elapsed since Jan 1, 1970. -- J.W.
