• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

Today's article is a few ways to use touch to deal with timestamps...

We use the touch command to create files but it's really 'meant' for dealing with things like timestamps, at least if the man page is to be believed.

So, this article is a few of the ways you're most likely to use the touch command to play around with timestamps.
