Geek party alert: It's 1234567890 UTC today!

1234567890day.png

For the general masses, it has to be one of the most obscure reasons to party ever, but for a true geek there’s a celebration to be had later today. Thanks to Stretchy for tipping us off about this one.

At exactly 11:31:30 GMT, the Unix time stamp will be 1234567890. Of course, those cheeky San Franciscans have decided to hold an official party from 2:31pm PST (an hour early to get the alcohol flowing), but there are other parties going on around the world.

AmpliVox SW915 – an all-in-one, very loud, portable amp

I’m not sure how many all-night-rave organizers read Tech Digest, but you can never tell with the internet. The SW915 Digital Audio Travel Partner is a whopping great big box on wheels that contains, variously, a speaker, an amplifier, a CD player, SD card slot, and wireless microphone.

Basically, you roll up in an abandoned warehouse, pop Rave Anthems 2 into the cd drive, and then go nuts, occasionally shouting “Bo! Bo! Bo!” over the wireless microphone. 250 watts over up to a 30,000 sq. ft. area should ensure that the complaints start rolling in and the police show up sooner, rather than later.

Still, when they do, you’ll be able to flick it off, grab the handle and leg it before the fuzz can catch you. Then start up all over again the following weekend. I wouldn’t try dragging it through the Glastonbury mud, though – those wheels don’t look like they can take that kind of punishment.
