I am using my wordpress install to share newsletters and other family writing from the past century, and maybe even older. I have been setting the post timestamp for the dates of these letters and events, but so far I am seemingly unable to set a date earlier than 1969-12-31, 6:00:00 pm. If I set a date earlier than that, the date is automatically set for this date. Is this a function of my sql server or a limitation in/of wordpress?
My archive list displays the entrys correctly, as if they have the correct time stamp, but the edit post page shows the date as 1969-12-31, 6:00:00 pm.
