I was converting a timestamp here, when I red the following:
It should also be pointed out (thanks to the comments from visitors to this site) that this point in time technically does not change no matter where you are located on the globe. This is very useful to computer systems for tracking and sorting dated information in dynamic and distributed applications both online and client side.
I could not understand what this exactly means: is the unix timestamp an absolute measure?
That is: suppose I have a client in the USA and this client connects to a server located in Russia. Does the Unix timestamp is exactly the same in the same moment for both the client and the server? I'm a little confused...
