Checking timestamps

Here’s a great trick for those of you who have to get a report into a certain folder 3 days before a meeting, and your boss routinely checks the timestamps on the files during the meeting, chastising anyone who was late.
touch -t [[CC]YY]MMDDhhmm[.SS] filename
I’m not in this situation, but I thought about it a couple of times in the past.
