Wow - dates and times sure are all over the place in Ruby.
I want to initialize a DateTime object to have MDY of 12/30/1899 but
time components matching the current time.
DateTime.strptime("%Y-%m-%d %h:%M:%S", “1899-12-30
but strptime doesn’t seem to like it.
Do I need to use a Time object - where’s the correct string parsing
method for me to use?
