A Troppo reader thoughtfully emailed me to point out that our clock was way out of whack. For some reason WordPress had decided to set its time to GMT+22, which means that comments in the last day or so have all come to us (cue spooky theremin music) FROM THE FUTURE, duh duh daaa!Don’t be surprised if things show up in weird orders.
Update: Another helpful email, this time from our UCC liaison James Andrewartha. He has pointed out that our feeds are reporting that they were last modified on January 1st 1970. In his words, an epoch fail (that’s a nerd joke). It explains why so many feed readers have had trouble following our feed properly. When I get home today I will try and spelunk the WordPress codebase to suss out what’s going wrong — and whether upgrading to the new release of WordPress will fix it or not.
