Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Anyone remember when it was?

This leads to the follow-up: When the hell am I getting Fanatic?! – Eric Aug 5 '09 at 14:13
@Eric, I believe the first Fanatic badges will begin going out on or about September 3, 2009 – Timothy Carter Aug 5 '09 at 14:17
And I'm going to be on vacation for the two weeks preceding that date. sob – mmyers Aug 5 '09 at 14:27

Well using the query:

select Date from badges where name = 'Enthusiast' and userid = 2598

(I don't actually know sql btw)

I found that my badge was awarded on '1246043556', or 'GMT: Fri, 26 Jun 2009 19:12:36 GMT'.

Anyone know how to convert that to a pretty time stamp?

Thanks to
