I followed up on your wiki reference and would like to know how to 
convert Unix time -893,400,000 into a date I can understand.
date -d'-893400000'
doesn't work on my system.

perl -e “require ‘ctime.pl’; print &ctime($EPOCH);”
was suggested in one of the links but I've no idea where to stick the negative number.

can python do this for us?
