Converting C++ Unix time_t Julian date to SQL date


I've just been trying to do this. I looked on Google and it seems to
be a common problem with no obvious solution. I've seen various
solutions which don't seem exactly elegant, so I figured I'd post the
solution I came up with. It's effectively a single line solution,
albeit with various embedded calls. It makes an adjustment for the
local timezone too!
DECLARE @time_t INT
SET @time_t = 1090834321 /* 10:32am, July 26th 2004 BST */

DECLARE @timestamp DATETIME
SET @timestamp = dateadd (ss, datediff (ss, GetUTCDate(), GetDate()),
dateadd (ss, @time_t, '19700101'))
PRINT @timestamp
Hope that helps. If there's a problem with it, let me know!
