computer science related Theory Drop

In   computer  science  and   computer  programming,   system  time
represents a computer  system's notion of the passing  of time.  In
this sense, time also includes the passing of days on the calendar.
System  time is  measured by  a  system clock,  which is  typically
implemented  as a simple  count of  the number  of ticks  that have
transpired since  some arbitrary  starting date, called  the epoch.
For example,  Unix and  POSIX-compliant systems encode  system time
("Unix time") as  the number of seconds elapsed  since the start of
the Unix epoch  at 1 January 1970 00:00:00  UT, with exceptions for
leap seconds.
