What you are looking at is refered to a epoch time value. Typically used on Unix and refers to the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since the date of January 1, 1970.
Try searching cflib.org for epoch and you will find a few.

what you're describing is java epoch offset, unix uses *seconds* which is what
this data appears to be.
this is fairly simple to handle:
startEpoch=createdate(1970,1,1); // like it says
unixEpochOffset=1175254200; // seconds since epoch start
Well I guess its safe to say I have no UNIX experience. I have went and educated myself on this issue now that I know what it is. Many thanks and the script is appreciated. It actually got me moving on with this project.
