Thank you for this!  My tweet is getting a lot of traction:

    perl -le 'print scalar localtime 15e8'
    Thu Jul 13 19:40:00 2017

Of course, that will print the localtime in whatever timezone they are

I followed it up with:

    perl -le 'print scalar gmtime 15e8'
    Fri Jul 14 02:40:00 2017

Just so that it was clear to everyone what was happening.
