Epoch time and Epoch time milestone

The Unix epoch (also known as Unix Time Stamp) is the representation of time as the number of non-leap seconds since 00:00:00 UTC on January 1, 1970. It is introduced by Unix operating system, , standardised in POSIX. The clock is used not just by Unix, but also by Linux, Java, JavaScript, Mac OS X, and various other technologies. In the fields of chronology and periodization, an epoch means an instant in time chosen as the origin of a particular era. The "epoch" then serves as a reference point from which time is measured. Time measurement units are counted from the epoch so that the date and time of events can be specified unambiguously.

On Friday, February 13th 2009, 23:31:30 UTC, it will be exactly 1,234,567,890 seconds since the beginning of Epoch Time, which was on midnight of January 1, 1970. So it's the time for Unix nerds to celebrate 1234567890 :-)
And here's a site that's counting down to that momentous event: http://coolepochcountdown.com/

Adobe Unveils Creative Suite 4 (CS4)

Yesterday I attended the Adobe Creative Suite CS4 Grand Unveil seminar at Muscot hotel, Trivandrum. The scheduled time was 9.15 and we reached there at correct time. I was already a registered user for this seminar; I got Adobe Hand Voucher from the registration counter. This Registration process went for an hour and the seminar started at 10.15.

The first seminar was about the Adobe Bridge.

Adobe Bridge CS4 is a powerful, easy-to-use media manager for visual people, letting you easily organize, browse, locate, and view creative assets. Available in all six editions of Adobe Creative Suite® 4 software and in most of Adobe's professional creative applications, Bridge provides centralized access to project files and global settings, as well as to XMP metadata tagging and searching capabilities.

Will be continued..
