What do you mean by "Julian timestamp"? The term is used in several
meanings. The most correct one is probably the astronomical Julian
day number, but it's also used (incorrectly, IMHO) to refer to a
timestamp containing the day of the year. (It might also refer to the
old Julian calendar, but I don't think that's what you meant.)

Show us an example of what you mean.
