    Seems to me to be a basic human characteristic. On a larger scale, it is called war.

    Maybe unrelated, but SB system clock seems to be doing funny things. Checking both posting times and the display at the bottom of every SB page. Was originally off by about an hour when I started reading this morning, but I really started wondering when SB's clock went backwards a few minutes on successive page loads (from 11:13 am GMT -5 to 11:12 am).

    My personal time zone and daylight savings time settings seem to be correct (i.e. I am actually in GMT -5 (Eastern) and it is indeed 15:23 UTC as I type this, only a couple of minutes after aforementioned display of 11:12 am.).

    The clock is fixed. However, this makes this post appear before the other post to which I am replying.

    The clock has been synced with the Atomic Clock now and that might cause a few issues
    for about an hour. :D

    Other than that, we seem to be "golden" again. I would like to thank the entire staff for their support in this trying time, with especially HUGE kudos to HowardE and to El Orans. This site would have folded without their tireless support. Hey Howard... GET SOME SLEEP! :D

    When I do a search I get:

    And it is ticking; if I try in 30 seconds it gives me 1721!

    I can do only one search every half an hour!

    Some people really should get a life.:shakehead:

    I also noticed that a thread I started now has the first reply as the thread starter. It's in the UW photography forum about the 2 Medals in the camera club competition. Very strange.

    I posted this in several places, but I reset the clock about 1 hour ago. Things are now displaying normally, but the hour overlap caused some weirdness to postings, this could not be avoided.

    Nope, not at all. Wondered if the attack might have been connected? I don't know what Admin knows, of course. Just offering possible clues.

    I'm still wondering if the attack came from the Middle East...??
