Am I the only one who seems to have noticed something odd about the server timestamps? It seems like all timestamps are for nine minutes after the hour regardless of when in the hour it was posted. Am I misunderstanding something?

Does this have anything to do with the problem the other day (when the site was coming back as unregistered for several hours)?

Lisp programmers tend to seem very odd to outsiders, just like anyone else who has had a religious experience they can't quite explain to others.

Hi,

I can't find anything (on forums or wiki) where server time stamps are all "N minutes after the hour".

That's very unlikely - the osdev.org server was still running and unaffected/unchanged (and several people changed their "hosts" file to continue using the site), it's just that DNS lookups were being redirected to ICANN before http requests got anywhere near the osdev.org server.

More likely (given that I can't see a problem) is some kind of internationalisation issue (e.g. a dodgy "time and date format" string for whichever locale you're using that's causing month number to be displayed instead of the minute?).


Cheers,

Brendan

Looking at the 'posted' times for this thread, it gives "1309" for my earlier post (which was posted at 1325EDT - I specifically checked), while yours is showing "1409" (which I am quite certain was also not the case).

EDIT: this post is also showing as "1409"; according to my system clock, I actually posted it at 1440 EDT. I'll get a screenshot posted ASAP.

Brendan, you were right, though I am still puzzled as to how I ended up doing that and not noticing before. I haven't changed that format string in years, so I don't know how I overlooked that before. I can only conclude that I am an even bigger idiot that I thought.
