Goofing Off In Epoch Proportions

Re-writing one of my tools that will be included with my extended ext3cow tool set, something to help translate epoch (UNIX stamps) to standard calendar dates. The tool also settles races, telling you which file in a group has the latest modification date.

For those of you who don’t know about the UNIX epoch, its simply the number of seconds that have lapsed since January 1, 1970. Despite the difficulty of determining this and plotting accurate time lapses almost 40 years ago and to a period where cell phones and mobile broadband didn’t exist yet, I was convinced of trying it.
