True but there's a lot more to it than just the system date!

I don't think so Dan. The time stamp on a post determines the sort order. So long as the system date is wrong then so is the sort order.

Yep, more wrong than just the date. Many of the posts are missing. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//frown.gif

They aren't missing. This morning the system date was set for the year 2001. The BBS software sorts topics according to the date and time stamp of the last post. Any topic that somebody posted to this morning isn't missing, it is now ranked back with topics from 2001. They are still there and can be found with a search. For example:

Evan,

Early this morning the website was totally inaccessible.

The 'search' feature wasn't working right for quite a while after the website came back up. I was using 'any date' but the date problem could still have messed that up.

The date changed on new posts a couple of times today.

I did find all of my posts so they weren't missing. I can't get to them now so they may be gone or just inaccesible (virtually the same thing). Some had a date of 8/17/2001 (IIRC) for a while today. Other posts had something else later (4/18/04, off by a day).

There were something like 156 pages of posts I could access this morning.

Now new posts are showing 4/17/04.

Quite a number of things are out of whack.

Most may be date related now but that's probably not all that was wrong earlier today.

I think it's about time we had that meatloaf pressure tested and a spectroscopic analysis done.
