    Well, to be fair, 1612 is greater than 45, so the message is technically correct.


    I'd be interested in seeing the code that generated that, of course. It's probably some mundane thing like they muffed the conversion from milliseconds to seconds, though.

    A novel new feature?

    I'll ask someone to investigate.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    Serving our pages, we got a few webservers and a couple DB servers. One of these webservers has a mobo battery thats gone off the reservation, and so the system clock has followed suit.

    So sometimes, the forum thinks its the right time. Other times, the forum thinks its the wrong time. Depends which webserver you are hitting.

    We're asking the webhost to replace the battery, and then this should be fixed. Unfortunately, we run NTP to sync time, but that only works when the time drifts a few seconds or minutes. When its off by 20 minutes or more, NTPD just quits.

    Give a man a watch, and he will know what time it is. Give him two, and he will never know.

    Give a woman a watch and you will never be early.
