That's today at 7:40pm for those in the Bay Area.

Duplicates https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14758615 , and the date calculation is not actually measuring 1.5 Gs since the Epoch. See https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14760144

I suppose you only turn One billion, five hundred million once

The time in the headline is actually when you turn 1500000027. "You" turn 1.5 Gs some 27 seconds earlier.

Doesn't look a day over sixty million.

makes me remeber my first steps with suse's yast. many, many years ago. those were the days when i wasn't afraid or too lazy "reverse-engineering" stuff and learn.

also, one friend once always used the password "susel". no joke.

Remember when it was reaching 1234567890.
