Yea I didn't account for alphanumeric input using ctype. In that case, if
the text field contains any letters it should be run through *strtotime*().
It's a very flexible built-in php function that can detect alot of mixed
dates. For example it detects "yesterday", " one week ago", June 10th 2008",
