I'm given an integer which is the number of seconds since January 1, 2008. Is there a simple way to convert this to a date format?

Or do I have to do it the hard way (which I could, but I'd rather save myself the trouble.)

DateTime dt = new DateTime(2008, 1,1,0,0,0);
DateTime newDt =  dt.AddSeconds(DateTime.Now.Subtract(dt).TotalSeconds);'

haven't tested this but was the first thought

Almost..

Where numSeconds is your integer value:

DateTime base = new DateTime(2008, 1,1,0,0,0);
DateTime dt =  base.AddSeconds(numSeconds);'
