    The MacBytes articles currently being posted are dated 12 hours in the future. So you get things like this where iMeowbot replied to one and had his post get inserted before the original post.

    Yep, I just had the same thing happen, and you're right, the dates on the MB posts are wrong.

    I was wondering if anybody was posting. It felt like a ghost town in New Posts :D

    Now I'm noticing that my "last activity" data in my profile keeps jumping forward 12 hours and then jumping back, possibly depending on my last action.

    (Note that it's currently 9:58 PM here.)

    Crud...Forum Spy just went down, and with New Posts being borked by the date craziness, how am I supposed to keep up in the forums?!?

    We've found a way to control time itself! The world will be ours!

    Forum Spy works for me, it just doesn't get updated automatically, I need to press refresh every now and then.

    I keep getting logged in then out again. I think that's the date issue. :(

    Two of the servers seem to have jumped 12 hours ahead of the other two, which is confusing it somewhat. I fixed it on one of them, which hopefully should solve some of the forum issues, but arn needs to fix it on the other one (for macbytes mainly).

    Thanks, guys...Forum Spy ended up being down for only a few minutes for me, but it seemed like all of MacRumors was crumbling away before my eyes for a while there...it was quite disturbing.

    Make sure you have all of the servers located as close to each other possible to increase the likelihood that they'll all pass through the rift in the space-time continuum together and at least have the same wrong time. ;)
