[rrd-users] two questions on entering time as seconds since epoch

why can't one use time before 1980 ?

export TZ=GMT
rrdtool graph foo.gif --start="01/01/1970"

ERROR: the first entry to fetch should be after 1980 (0)


how does one enter start/end time as seconds when the
number of seconds is small, such as 10,000 seconds since
epoch ?

export TZ=GMT
rrdtool graph foo.gif --start=000010000 ...
ERROR: start time: did you really mean month 10000?

Thanks ...
