Which "epoch?"

To mention (blatantly lifted from WP) a few:

  • ( (31 Dec 01(BCE) 23:59:59) + 1 sec ) - MATLAB & Symbian
  • 01 January 01 - M$ .NET
  • 01 Jan 1601 - NTFS, COBOL, Win32/Win64
  • 01 Jan 1753 - M$ SQL Server
  • 30 Dec 1899 - M$ COM DATE, Object Pascal
  • 01 Jan 1904 - Mac OS thrru V9 & Palm OS
  • 31 Dec 1967- Pick OS
  • 01 Jan 1970 - Unix time & languages such as Perl, C, Java, JS
  • 01 Jan 1980 - DOS, OS/2, FAT16 and FAT32 filesystems
  • 01 Jan 2001 - Apple's Cocoa framework

Who wudda' thunk M$ would assert so many different epochs?.

If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!
