Why does Projects sometimes display the same day twice?

Currently, when I check Projects I can see two April 15, two April 19, two April 27, and two May 7. Is this a problem with the time settings, that is, am I getting mixed-up dates because for me two projects were posted on different days, but for the servers they were posted on the same day? This doesn't happen on the Metafilter front page though, and always the day after these double-ups is missing.

Does anybody else see this, and if so/not what are your time settings? I'm +8 hours.

Thanks for letting us know. It was a time zone glitch that should be working now.

I'm beginning to think that pb must be a robot, or maybe a web designing superhero, no human is that diligent and effective.

nah, no robot. The problem was the equivalent of a code-typo. I didn't catch it earlier because the problem only showed up for certain timezones. So it was no big deal to spot and fix once I was aware of it.

Robots are all programmed to deny that they are robots. The fact that you are denying it proves that you are a robot. PB IS A ROBOT!!

Personally I would have gone with the claim of super-powers, I already try to pull that one off and I'm not even super-fast at spotting typos or nothing.

The compiler prints syntax errors to stderr, spinning its cycles uselessly trying to compile, but it can't. Not without a closing bracket. But, you're not adding a closing bracket. Why is that?

pb, I have a quick question for you: It’s your birthday. Someone gives you a calfskin wallet. How do you react?

I swear to god, if you guys freak him out and he shoots mathowie and escapes into the night again, I am not going to be the one who calls Harrison Ford this time.

Cortex, why are you worried? Aren't they the ones who are going to get shot?

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
