You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

I have just reverted the two seconds_ago functions to their original code. I was tinkering with them, because I noticed an inaccuracy, but I haven't fixed it yet.

And I just checked the negative update time after my post and it showed exactly negative four hours, so almost certainly a time zone issue.

Random shot in the dark, I'm going to guess it's a time zone issue.  Database record of message is stamped wtih UTC whereas the web server that renders it is EST or something like that?

There's a comment that was submitted negative seconds ago. Since we know time travelers don't exist, what caused this bug?
