Fix broken getCurrentTime() method in Safari #293

In Safari, but not other browsers, new Date( "2016-09-23 14:57:10" ) is an Invalid Date. It turns out that including T delimiting the date from the time causes it to work in Safari, so this PR implements that.

@delawski fun fact, in Chrome (and Safari) when you supply the T it is then the datetime string is interpreted to be in UTC. In Chrome when you don't have the T it interprets it in the local timezone (and Safari fails completely).

@westonruter wow, I didn't know that making dates work in JS is still a challenge, even though it's 2016 already!

If there was a need to do complex operations on dates, I'd suggest investigating one of the date libraries like Moment.js.
