Epoch in a sentence as a noun

I'd been worried that it was just an epoch fail.

I believe the Unix epoch is mentioned briefly.

You can pry my "seconds since the epoch" timestamps from my cold dead hands.

* The Raft epoch of the election is used as a version of the new configuration.

Reflecting on the fact that this video was recorded before the unix epoch was humbling.

Put the timestamps in epoch time - that never changes, then read them back in whatever your current timezone is.

They claim it's number of seconds since the epoch, which would imply this timer will not encounter discontinuities.

Well, consider your statement about "actual seconds elapsed since epoch".

It's milliseconds since the epoch, plus the leap seconds that have accumulated over that period.

So every Sentinel is listening for configs with an epoch that is greater than the current config, to update its view of the cluster.

The only widely used timebase that's pure milliseconds since the epoch that I'm aware of is GPS time, and basically everything adds in the leap seconds before actually using that number.

The Timeframe series starts much earlier than the Durant's, but once both series were in sync I would read the books in both series for an epoch, as well as at least two other books, either written in the era or about the era, drawing mostly from science, culture, and biography.

In an epoch characterized by monopolies, oligopolies, monopsonies, monopolistic antagonism and polymorphous inelasticities, our policies have to be more orthological.

Epoch definitions
