  1234567890 is now
At this current moment, Sat Feb 14 00:31:30 CET 2009 to be precise, the current Unix time is 1234567890.
Unix time is a universal time format that is defined as the number of seconds elapsed since midnight Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds. It is also returned by the Standard C Library function time().
All very geeky, but if you're a programmer these things are part of the canon.
Now, the extra geeky thing is that if you would ask a computer at this exact moment the Unix time, you would get: 1234567890. Which are all the numbers, in the exact order they can be found, on a keyboard.

Ok - I have to get a life, because I seem to spend it quite a lot of it behind a computer ;-)

Anyway: Happy Valentine's Day!
