Si tu as une pomme, que j'ai une pomme, et que l'on échange nos pommes, nous aurons chacun une pomme. Mais si tu as une idée, que j'ai une idée et que l'on échange nos idées, nous aurons chacun deux idées.

Thanks for the report.  However, this is not a bug.

%C does not mean the century in common parlance, rather, according to
POSIX, it means:


> %C
>     Century (a year divided by 100 and truncated to an integer) as a decimal 
> number [00,99].

Yes, the mnemonic is using century for lack of a better term, but it is
correctly printing all but the last two digits of the year.
