The forum time stamp clock seems to be wrong. I already checked the forum settings - it is set to the correct time zone (PST).

Forum time stamp shows 1:00 AM for that post. The clock is 42 minutes fast.

so?

So it's not time stamping posts accurately.

See, what we do when a clock isn't set accurately is we set it to the correct time.

It's futile, he's a 12 o'clock flasher.

lol. it's not that. okay, it's not totally that.

there's not a distinct _fuck_with_the_timestamp function in the forum software.

that means that the timestamp comes from either the jvm, or the system clock from the physical server.

need i remind everyone, the physical server is Arglex's company's production server.

I'm not changing any settings on the physical server.

If one wishes to PM Arglex and ask him nicely to check the system clock of the OS they can.

personally, i don't care.

My post was in support of you, not criticising.

i understood that. i was just explaining the situation for those who might not understand my reticence to "fix" the timestamp.

An explanation is so much better than just a "no".

Whiteknave says we need to ask you about this fix.

Can you fix it?

Your production server's clock is way off! Thought you might like to know.
