Unix Times is an explanation of the system in a number which is the number of seconds from January 1, 1970 at 00:00:00 UTC. Numbers 1 Time in Unix can be converted as of 1 January 1970 at 00:00:01 UTC, and so on, so for the 15th February 2009 at 16:05:30 UTC in the Unix Time is 1234713930. Time called Unix, as originally used on Unix systems in the present data and save time. The use of Unix Time is more in the field of computers, such as in programming or database.


If the system is known umunya calendar year or anniversary, it is certainly not known in the Unix Time as numbers will continue to grow. Made the usual "warning" Unix Time-related numbers are formed when "the beautiful" or have any special meaning as 1,000,000,000 (one billion), which falls on 9 September 2001 at 01:46:40 UTC, 1111111111 (18 March 2005, 01: 58:31 UTC), or that recently occurred when the number of the Unix Time 1234567890 achieve a fall on 13 February 2009 at 23:31:30 UTC is celebrated in many places. In the future, moments that may be part of the celebration is when the Unix Time to reach 2,000,000,000 (two billion), which falls on 18 May 2033 at 03:33:20 UTC that day and also referred to as "Unix Millennium Bug".

Unix Millennium Bug or Year 2038 problem is a bug that will occur on 32-bit systems that use the Unix time integer as the time in the system that can be represented for the largest integer value that can be stored that is 2147483647 which fell on 19 January 2038 at 03: 14:07. In the next seconds, the 32-bit systems that store data as an integer Unix Time will read it as the year 1901. Problems can occur long before that date, for example when saving the maturity date 10 years after the date of 19 January 2028.
