How odd.

I apologize for all the short posts, but . . . browsing my friends page, I note something interesting about the "day" headers. At the top of the page (as of writing this) is a header for "Thursday, June 28th, 2001", the entry being written at 1:52AM. Next, another day header, for "Wednesday, June 27th, 2001", entry at 11:18PM. Next, *another* day header - for thursday again! Entry written at 12:25AM. And finally, yet another day header for Wednesday, written at 11:09PM. Why?

Time zones!

heronblue's on the east coast, and can therefore post an entry at 12:25 AM before Kareal, on the west coast, can post an entry at 11:18 PM.

I can only wonder about the weird data structures they've got in the databases - they must have "post time" and "displayed time" or something. Leads to some weirdnesses in the friends listings.
