This is one for the geeks - though if you hadn't already noticed it, you probably aren't all that geeky.
For the benefit of non-geeky types, I should explain that the Unix Epoch time is a number used to represent time/date in computing, which is based on the number of seconds since some arbitrary date (in 1970).
The thing is, we're heading towards a really cool number. On Friday, 13th February at 23:31:30 GMT, the Unix time will be 1234567890.
I don't know about anyone else, but I'll be having a countdown party! Maybe I'll make some of these scrummy-looking orange biscuits.
