Convert Unix timestamps into human readable dates.

Make meaning out of Unix timestamps. Bonus: try the reverse conversion.


What is a Unix timestamp?

Unix time, or POSIX time, is a system for describing instants in time, defined as the number of seconds that have elapsed since 00:00:00 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), Thursday, 1 January 1970, not counting leap seconds

What happens in 2038?

The year 2038 problem may cause some computer software to fail at some point near the year 2038. The problem affects all software and systems that both store system time as a signed 32-bit integer, and interpret this number as the number of seconds since 00:00:00 UTC on Thursday, 1 January 1970.

Why another Unix timestamp converter?

There are already quite a few existing alternatives that do a great job of converting timestamps to dates. However, I wanted to build something that was simple (did one job only, and did it well), instant (no need to click "Submit") and has a better user experience (an easy to find large text input - not a small one lost in the background).
