Now that is strange. The forum tells me what time it is and that is the correct time. When I made my post above and took a look at it the correct time that I made the post was shown. Now it is showing the wrong time of when the post was made. In fact, the time shown is actually several hours from now. That time hasn't arrived yet but it shows that I made that post then. I'll make this post, take a look at then edit after I see what happens to it.

Edit: The time I posted is shown correct on this post right now. But something very strange happened when I completed the post.

The post by Jan where mention is made of 9:18am was the first post and the one that started this thread. But, it is now shown as being the second post. My post where I said I don't know about others..... was the second post in this thread and it is now shown as the third post. This post which I'm not editing was the third post and it is shown as the first post. Yes, something is wrong.

Wow this is weird. Jan's message used to be the first, if I remember correctly.

Default Forum time?

It is evening here and the forum time is am 09:18 AM

I thought I was in a time warp as I have had a very rare stressful day

Is it just my end or is everyone else seeing a problem? I don't see any problem in admin, but then I never had to look at date and time settings before.

I don't know about others, but my forum time is being shown correctly.

Edit: I made this post earlier and was talking about the time shown on the forum where it says the The time now is ____. That is correct.

However something else is very much wrong. This is the first post that I made in this thread and it is shown as having been made at a time that hasn't even arrived yet. The second post that I made is shown before this one and is shown as the post starting this thread when the thread was actually started by Jan in the post talking about 9:18 AM.

Yes, something isn't right.

This has been very interesting. It was my first trip into the future and probably for others as well. But I can't be sure about that. There could be some Geek/Talk members who are here from the future.

It was great to see what I was going to post hours before I posted. It would be great if the Geek/Talk time machine would work all of the time with everything in life so I would know what was going to happen before it happened.

Is it to early to celebrate Halloween?

Seriously, the Forum index showes that Jan started this thread BUT her thread starting post is no where to be found AND Larry's post is showen as post #1. If I hover over the thread title I can read Jan's post to start this thread but I cant see her post if I open the thread. Strange or just me?

This is completely bizarre. Has anyone noticed the same phenomenon occurring in other Geek/Talk threads during the past 24 hours, or is the ultimate irony that these weird time shifts are only happening within a discussion about time shifts.
