Sorry 'bout that.

Oh. Now I see why it didn’t work when I first tried it. I was trying to do myDateString.split("-"). I didn't see the :.

I'm noo(b).

I try to avoid regex's. Just because a block of code is shorter doesn't mean it’s simpler. I find them largely opaque to easy comprehension.

Thanks all. You guys are a big help to a Lua noob.
