Large discrepancy between times of recent posts and the actual posts

Postby Eddy Deegan » Sun Feb 02, 2020 12:12 am

A small thing, but the 'latest forum/activity' panel on the right of the forum shows a timestamp against each entry:

The actual threads in question disagree:

The timestamps in the panel seem rather confused as to whether it's morning or afternoon :lol:

That was quick - I see things changing in the panel already, unless it has a 'random timestamp format' feature behind the scenes :crazy:

I commented on this back in August last year.

It's a server cache refresh issue and it happens.

Oh come on now! You surely don't expect us to accept such a simple answer.
It's probably due to a 12 hour time distortion caused by an intense gravity wave generated by a black hole that evaporated just enough for the event horizon to collapse.

P.S.
That probably also caused all the banking Internet issues over the last few days - their clocks got out of step.
