Hmm, cool:

#! /usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
my @t = localtime(time);
my $foo = sprintf ("%d-%02d-%02d %d:%d:%02d\n", $t[5]+1900, $t[4]+1, $t[3], $t[2], $t[1], $t[0]);
print $foo;

Einstein himself said that God doesn't roll dice. But he was wrong. And
in fact, anyone who has played role-playing games knows that God
probably had to roll quite a few dice to come up with a character like
Einstein.  -- Larry Wall                                     C. Abney
