How many seconds have passed since launch of Go4Expert.com ? Describe your calculation because when you post the answer few seconds error may always be there.

Shabbir wants the time elapsed since launch, not the first post.

FYI, G4EF was launched on 12 July 2004, not 15 July. I don't know how to find out the time to the accuracy of seconds, though !

The answers may be close but not perfect and I would still leave if someone can come up with something more accurate.

1st thing tell me who has deleted my entry after this ? I have posted it as below,

157,793,040 seconds If posted on GMT 5.5+ 06:07:00 PM.

Considering forum's first post on 07-15-2004 at 10:43 AM.

I have tried to find out at which second you posted this, but I am not able to find it out.

So, Starting Date 07-15-2004, Starting Time is 10:43:00 AM.

If you count for 07-13-2009, Time is GMT 5.5+ 06:45:00 AM.

The Result 1823 days, 20 hours, 2 minutes and 0 seconds can be converted into seconds.

So equals, 157,579,320 seconds at 07-13-2009, Time is GMT 5.5+ 06:45:00 AM.

I am still confused between launch and start date, but as suggested by nimesh and after trying out everything, I will go with this.

G4EF was launched on 12th July 2004, but the first post was made by shabbir, on 07-15-2004, 10:43 AM (here considering time as 10:43:00 AM).

So, from this calulation is as below.

Considering forum's first post on 07-15-2004 at GMT 5.5+ 10:43:00 AM.

So, Starting Date 07-15-2004, Starting Time is GMT 5.5+ 10:43:00 AM.

If you count for 07-13-2009, Time is GMT 5.5+ 07:15:00 AM.

The Result 1823 days, 20 hours, 32 minutes and 0 seconds can be converted into Seconds,

So equals, 157,581,120 seconds at 07-13-2009, Time is GMT 5.5+ 07:15:00 AM.

Hey I think you are missing one simple trick. I definitely joined before I made the first post and so its not the first post that should kick your calculation but it should be my join date.

Naimish is very close and so is the winner

Also Naimish I deleted thinking it was double post and I would undelete that.
