"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”.
