Working with dates pre-1901


#1

I’m working with some scientific data and have dates from studies that predate 1901. I’m noticing a limitation there and in that pymapd will actually not support anything less than epoch time. Is this just a known and accepted limitation? I found the pymapd one surprising.

Hi,

Can you share an example of how you reproduce the issue.

Dwayne,

I believe this issue lies with the pymapd connector. Essentially, it was using datetime.datetime.uncfromtimestamp which stopped functioning once the date preceded the Epoch date. In the mapd documentation, it puts an emphasis on a date in 1901, but still appears to support dates prior.
