    which, in round numbers, is 36 years, 267 days, 15 hours, and change.

    Good thing I started downloading the page just before the Apollo 11 moon landing, otherwise I'd still be waiting.

    I win! 



  • Hmm.  That's interesting.  I think they're just slapping out the epochal time, UTC, not the difference in time that occurred during the page gen. 



  • Interesting to see the same crowd visiting/posting on TheDailyWTF, Slashdot, Gizmodo, digg.com etc.........

    Or while listening to a psychology professor teach about attribution theory or whateverthecrapitis......... ;)



  • Okay, I admit it--I posted it on Slashdot as well.  No idea how it might have gotten to Digg, MySpace, Gizmodo, Quasimodo, or Monster.com.  That wasn't me.  I swear, I only see MySpace socially, and I never call back the next day!



  • haha i never knew you posted it on slashdot, i just remember the article you linked from slashdot's front page this morning, and was making a general comment about it....... :P 



  • My comment was 'way buried in the comments on that story.  Almost unnoticeable, really.  Hardly worth mentioning.  You'd need a microscope to--HEY, THERE'S ELVIS!

    Either that, or they're taking a difference but the second variable is incorrectly set to zero.

    Anyway, their tag is "If you've heard of it, we've modified it".

    Me: I've heard of page generation speed counter...
    Them: Oh that! Don't worry, we've modified it!

  • Um, I've heard of a second. It's approximately one eighty six thousand, four hundredth of a day.



  • Julian time?
