One more experiment ;)

I wanted to know more about the date and time problems showing up in wordpress posts..but i ended up in some more weird results there. Here is what i did :-

- First i created a new post with the Time Stamp : 12th March, -0001. I had aimed to have a post in the B.C. era :D - Then i searched for the post and it didn’t appear in the homepage of the website…Hmm so i went on to Manage -> Posts. Its date was automatically changed to 01-01-1970 !! - Well now comes the most interesting part…The permalink to this post given in the Manage -> Posts was

However this link gives a big **404** error !! And how does that
**1999-11-30**(30th November, 1999) comes ?? :O Was that because i
made the post Timestamp to the year **-0001** (may be 1999 comes as
2000-0001)...lots of confusions..but why does 30th November come..

Any ideas why this happens ??
