Unix Time

[From Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_Epoch]
Unix time, or POSIX time, is a system for describing
points in time, defined as the number of seconds
elapsed since midnight Coordinated Universal Time
(UTC) of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds. 

It is used widely, not only in Unix-like operating
systems, but also in many other computing systems
and file formats.
