Whats the basis of it?
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.

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.

Run the following PHP Script

PHP Code:
<?php
    
echo time() - strtotime ('Jul 12, 2004 0:00:00');
?>

hey Shabbir, if you have disbaled the edit option for other users, even you should not edit your own post and make a new post.

The original post that I received was:

I guess this is the first question where we have no Winner

And naimish's answer is how close than mine???

Our both's calculation was same, I just ignored the timezone difference as it doesn't matter if both the timestamp are taken from the same timezone setting (GMT+5.5)

And check my post, I even managed to guess the exact time of my post in minutes, while naimish got a difference of 1 minute.
