Time/date screwup when my server did "spring forward" last night
I'm in the eastern time zone and my server overnight was supposed to "spring forward" last night: advance the time by one hour. So at 2AM it was supposed to become 3AM.
I woke up this morning and went to my forums and noticed all new posts were showing a date from April 2029 !!
How can I find out HOW this happened so that I can make sure it doesn't happen in the future? It's really created a mess!
