   Public Shared Function ConvertFromUnixTimestamp(ByVal ts As TimeSpan) As Date
        Dim unixDayZero As New TimeSpan(New Date(1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0).ToLocalTime.Ticks)
        Return New Date(unixDayZero.Ticks + ts.Ticks)
    End Function

    Public Shared Function ConvertToUnixTimestamp(ByVal d As Date) As Double
        Dim ts As TimeSpan = d.Subtract(New Date(1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0).ToLocalTime)
