UNIX Time Stamp

What is the unix time stamp?
The unix time stamp is a way to track time as a running total of seconds. This count starts at the Unix Epoch on January 1st, 1970. Therefore, the unix time stamp is merely the number of seconds between a particular date and the Unix Epoch. This is very useful to computer systems for tracking and sorting dated information in dynamic and distributed applications both online and client side.

What happens on July 8, 2038?
On this date the Unix Time Stamp will cease to work. But by then we’ll all be using 64-bit processors in our computers solving this potential date of death for millions of applications. This is not considered a major concern by trusted experts in the computer science industry.
