    How do I convince a DS3231 to output seconds since 1/1/2000? I can’t find anything in the DS3231 data sheet describing such a function.

    • If you’re using the DS3231 library, you can use the following code:

      DateTime now = RTC.now(); //get the current date-time
      currentepochtime = (now.get()); //seconds since 1/1/2000

      Look at the “now” example that comes with the DS3231 library to see the whole sketch.
