Since my post about using Tweet-SQL to archive your Twitter timeline I noticed what a pain dealing with HTTP formatted dates is and how useful it would be to turn them into something a little more SQL Server friendly. So, I came up with a function that will allow this nasty date format to be handled a little more easily.
SELECT dbo.tweet_fnc_dateconvert('Tue Nov 04 22:33:39 +0000 2008');
Returns an ODBC canonical (with milliseconds) formatted datetime value, i.e. 2008-11-04 22:33:39.000
This function will be included in the upcoming release of Tweet-SQL.
