"1234567890 Day" Google Logo Appears for Brief Time
The internal representation of Unix time is the number of seconds since 1970. Recently, at 2009-02-13 23:31:30 UTC specifically, the Unix time stamp in decimal was 1234567890
. “Parties and other celebrations were held around the world, among various technical subcultures, to celebrate 1234567890 day,” Wikipedia
says. For the occasion, Google very briefly put up a special logo, which in green font read: “$ date +%s ... 1234567890”.
