sasCommunity Tip of the Day

Many SAS programmers have expressed their curiosity about the reason for selecting 1st Jan, 1960 as the point of reference for the SAS date calculations. There have been several proposed answers by SAS-L posters such as Mikeeee. Interestingly, the answer is actually provided by Rick Langston from SAS.
