How can I convert a unix timestamp into something readable?

The unix timestamp is a number representing the number of seconds since 1970.
Most applications use this value to keep track of what time it is.
If you have a unix timestamp and need to see what time it represents, you can create a basic php script to decode it for you.
Create a time.php in your public_html foler, and enter the following data:

if (isset($_GET['time']))
       echo date("r", $_GET['time']);
       echo " }


Then view it through the web, enter the number and submit the form.
