Fun date Integer Fun with UNIX date program

Dear Readers,

I was born 10805 days ago. March 22nd 1983.

Apparently that was a Tuesday. And today is Saturday October 20th 2012.

All thanks to the UNIX date command:
$ date -d “-10805 days”

Tue Mar 22 16:09:46 EST 1983

$ date

Sat Oct 20 17:11:11 EDT 2012

Best regrads,
Unkle Bijan
