well, if you've copy-pasted my version, you'll note that after printing `date`, it prints "date" -- which would make it appear to be right after the backticked version. move the IMPLIED heredoc to before the BACK heredoc aand you should see that change.

also, my version of date and yours are different; mine doesn't ask for the new date if called with no arguments. sorry for the inconvenience; i hope i didn't make your machine forget the date.
