Forum time is always 6-7min behind

Post by Hawkeye »

Noticed that it wasn't a one off, so thought I would post about it. Constantly now, the forum clock/time is 6-7min behind the actual time.

Not sure if this is a forum-wide issue or has something to do where I live (Adelaide, SA)? If someone could help me with this situation or if you're also having the same issue, that would be great :)

It is about 6 mins behind here in Sydney.

This problem was reported a couple of years back. IIRC it was a problem withe the hosting server.

A few weeks back it was only a few minutes out, then some other number of minutes out,

but just before this post at 16:37, this is what the BA clock was showing: 17:06:35, Wed 15 Jun 2016

At exactly 17:08:00 (clock was timed with BBC radio), the ATDB clock was showing 18:06:43, but it does vary.

Yes but there is also one 4.37 which relates to the 4.31 post - ie a six minutes difference.

Your 5.08 and 5.09 entries both relate to your 5.03 post - again a six minutes difference.

Says the same times for me, but says you posted your comment at 19:21 ahaha! I guess it's not that big of a deal, after all it is only out by around 5min 8)

It says 1921 for me as well. It's not like it's a paticuarly importnant feature of the board anyway, as computers and phones, etc. have their own clocks. TIme at posting: 22:15.

Update on my situation with this... Board now seems to be displaying the correct time as of my computer clock, time of post is 16.54. Is it fixed for everyone else too or am I the lucky one? :D

Mine is OK now, within 30 secs.

Likewise, it doesn't really bother me either. I rarely use it
