Epoch & Unix Timestamp Converter
Converts an epoch/unix timestamp into a human readable date. It also lets you do the inverse, i.e. converts a human readable date into an epoch/unix timestamp. It also displays the current epoch/unix timestamp in both seconds and milliseconds.
Epoch, also known as Unix timestamps, is the number of seconds (not milliseconds!) that have elapsed since January 1, 1970 at 00:00:00 GMT (1970-01-01 00:00:00 GMT).
In many modern programming languages, date objects make use of epoch as a starting point from which they compute the inner date value. For example, in Java, the java.lang.Date class is set with the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since epoch.
Thanks to Kevin Stewart for pointing out the conversion issue.
