Is there any special reason why the site clock is 17 minutes slow? It's a little disconcerting, Cheers Ian...

    17 mins? For me is 1hour and 18 mins out. Tho that could be a BST/GMT issue.

    probably something simple like a skewed time on the new server. Maybe jason will sort this when he gets home as it's simple enough *hint* hehe

    j/k jason :P

    Yeah, it's been about 15 to 17 minutes slow for at least the last month, or two.

    ...and it drives me nutty!

    Sure wish someone would correct it - please...

    I've noticed this for a long time. I just thought it was something with my computer.

    That and nobody else had said anything.
    Now I don't think about it anymore. At least not until I saw this post.

    well, next time i see jasonlambert on the IRC channel, i will request he updates the system time, i have a feeling this is what's causing the skew. It wont fix posts that occurred during the skewed time, but will fix posts thereafter. *hopefully*

    It's the date settings on the server, I'll fix it tonight.

    Jason, the fix must not have worked - it's still showing about 17 minutes off on this end.
