The date 12/31/1969 is very suspicious to me, it is the day before the Unix Epoch. Briefly, all UNIX machines and many others do not store dates internally as something like "12/31/69" but rather as an integer representing the number of seconds since some arbitrary point in time. The integer is then converted on demand into whatever format the user desires. For UNIX machines, that arbitrary date is midnight UTC on 1/1/1970, which is why I think that this date is particularly interesting, as if someone fed -1 to a date integer.
