What is Unix time?

Unix time, also sometimes known as POSIX or epoch time, is a system for keeping track of time that is invaluably useful in almost all fields of computer technology. Why? Because unix time is simply a count of seconds that have elapsed since January 1 1970, 00:00:00 UTC (the Unix epoch), and that makes for some terribly easy time-related computing and programming (think sorting, math, etc). The unix time(stamp) can always be converted into any normal date format for human consumption when that is needed.

Convert dates to unix timestamps…
