I get the date you first put in. Tried several, all the way back to the battle of Hastings. All good  The negative seconds do the math as well as ordinary ones.


The thing went south when I tried the birth of Charlemangne. I suppose thee digit dates are not well received.

Try this:

on mouseUp
   put "1/1/69" into t
   convert t to secs
   convert t to short date
   put t
end mouseUp

Is there yet a convenient way to handle conversion of dates prior to 1/1/70?
