“But nothing gets noticed more than which employees constantly turn up late. Even if bosses say they don’t care – they do. Nothing tarnishes your reputation more quick than being THAT person” —Some Quick Sage Advice for Young Employees Early in Their Careers
“Thank you for your offer of $300 USD. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to make a deal at this level. I would need an offer from you that is much closer to the $69,000 USD” —Some dipshit trying to sell me a domain name
“Basically your code is never free from errors. “alpha”, “beta”, “production read”, and “rock solid” are just names we assign to the probability we believe there is for a serious error to be discovered in a reasonable time frame.” —More on the nature of bugs and crashes in this post from the creator of Redis, the ever-insightful Salvatore Sanfilippo.

Meet NixTi.meAll of the unixtime to human-readable-date pages on the web are pretty ugly so I made my own. Introducing nixti.me. It’s pretty simple but has a couple tiny yet convenient “features”.
- accepts seconds since epoch, ms since epoch, a valid bson ObjectId & any string that PHP’s strtotime function understands as input.
- tack on json=1 to the URL to get output as json
- tack on f=local, f=utc or f=unixtime to the URL to get just a single field from the json output
Obviously it would be nice to be able to skip the web browser thing and get at it from the terminal. Simple enough - just add something like this to your
nixtime "string or timestamp to get data for".
