    THis morning while trying to respond to a post, the system would not let me use the quote feature, so I use the new reply instead. I just looked at the thread, and my reply is posted before the post I was replying to!

    I saw that one and was going to comment on your amazing demonstration of precognition. I am saddened to discover the explanation is mundane.

    I suspect the time on the server must have drifted, I will investigate. It's suppose to auto sync with one of those nuclear clocks, but that may not be happening.
    Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name

    OK, it looks like the clock on the server runs fast. So when it syncs with an accurate outside time source it pushes the time back. Explains how your post ended up in front of the other. We may be moving to another machine, this box has some other issues I'm also not crazy about.

    I'm sure one of our Pseudo regulars could come up with a much more exciting explanation!

    I would suggest syncing the server clock with a sundial but you can't even trust those anymore. What, with the sky being fake and all:
