    We have posts in the future

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I wish it was PEBKAC. But regional settings are correct, DST is correctly set too and my local system times (just in case) are correct too. I deleted cookies just in case... but the same.

    It's currently 22:02 GMT, November 4th.

    If you notice in the bugs and strange things sticky thread where forum bugs and strange things are usually posted, somebody complained about the forum time being incorrect. Apparently it was advanced by 12 hours, and apparently it has now been fixed. Of course, that fix would be to set it back twelve hours, so for the following twelve hours from the fix there will be posts marked with a future time/date, and some of the posts will show up higher in the threads than posts they quote.
