ETSNZ - How do you interpret the time displayed in the Error Logs for Advantys islands?

The time displayed in Error Log is in units of seconds. It is supposed to return the "calender" date by returning the number of seconds elapsed since January 1, 1970.  Thus, timestamp of 915164738 would put the time of event at around 1999. In addition, since NIP2212 does not have a battery back up, it is not possible to keep correct time while it is not powered.
Timestamp is useful only for determining the differences in time between 2 events, assuming the NIM had been left on between the 2 events.
Timestamp is a signed 32-bit value, so it would roll over after 4294967296 (or half that depending on how negative values are handled) seconds or in about 107 years.
