Hold on, Just a Gigasecond!

I've been reading Vernor Vinge. Alot of his stuff. He is super cool.
In the latest book I've been reading, A Deepness in the Sky, he uses seconds extensively for dating: mega-seconds (1 million seconds) and giga-seconds (1 billion seconds). Given that 1 billion seems like such an unreal number, I thought it was interesting to ponder hitting the 1 billion (second) mark. So to calculate when that happened, I did up a script: What's a Gigasecond?
What were you doing when your gigasecond odometer rolled over?
