  Sample input:
UnixTime2TimeStamp(1149855960.016667;-7)
  Sample output:
6/9/2006 12:26:00.016667

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Inspired by Tony Moller's Unix_Date (this is, I believe, the same thing in reverse). See http://www.briandunning.com/cf/64

For a good definition of Unix Time, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_Time

Be careful that the time zone offset takes into account daylight savings time.
