It seems the server's clock is slow by five minutes.

Edit: Dang, you're right. Timestamp on my post is 5 minutes earlier than the time on my computer ... and I don't think WebmasterWorld's server is in one of those weird time zones that's 5 minutes away from everyone else.

I think itís only four minutes now
Then again, maybe the offset was 4:59 all along, and this time you happened to land on just ... the ... right ... second.

Edit after posting: If so, I too hit just-the-right-second.

Gosh. This is more fun than watching grass grow, and almost as much fun as watching paint dry. And definitely more fun than proofreading {title I am currently procrastinating on}.

I would have assumed they synchronise the clock but obviously that is not the case yet.

I selected the right timezone, but apparently DST isn't supported, so it's an hour (and 5 minutes) off.

Van Halen said the same thing. Skip to 3:39 to refresh your memory:

Hey, it's fixed! :)

I remember one time my server's clock was off by quite a few minutes. It was awfully disorienting because I'd do stuff on my test site, pull up the logs, search for a specific action with some exact timestamp ... and there was nothing there. (And that's why you need a test site. If you can't find it at 10:36, it will be two lines down at 10:48.)

That may account for the missing 5 minutes.
