Thread: NZB Dates

  1. #1
    Does anyone know how to "read" the plaintext dates in NZBs? For example:
    Code:
    date="1295496895"
    ...is displayed as GMT 4:14:55 Thursday 2011.01.20 in a newsreader.

    It's Unix time. It represents the amount of seconds that have passed since the midnight of January 1, 1970, without counting leap seconds.

    Wow, thanks - I didn't know that. I tested it with a calculator and it works

    41 years
    19 days (29 - 10 [There have been 10 leap years since 1970])
    4 hours
    14 minutes
    55 seconds

    It's widely used in internet apps and other softwares.
    The problem with it is that when we reach January 19, 2038, we will need another digit. It will be the next y2k.

    A graphical example:


    Switching to a 64-bit integer before that date would pretty much solve the problem for a long time
