• Time information

    From Altere@VERT/ATHEL to Digital Man on Monday, February 17, 2020 12:12:11
    I forgot to logout yesterday before going to sleep, so out of curiosity I hit ^T to see the time information and got the following:

    Logon Time : Sun Feb 16 2020 05:32 pm
    Local Time : Mon Feb 17 2020 12:03 pm CDT
    Time Used : 18:31:10
    Time Remaining : 24:00:00

    Your time has been reduced due to an upcoming event on Wed Dec 31 1969 06:00 pm

    Now, everything is correct except the upcoming event date. I'm assuming since I'm sysop and was logged in at the time an event was supposed to run, or ran, the date is showing up wrong.

    LOL 1969. There's something definitely wrong there. Maybe a bug. I was only 5 yrs old.

    What does that mean?

    What is that relevant to?

    What are you talking about?

    Perhaps he did. Still doesn't help with the lack of context due
    to no quoting...

    Added to the todo list. Probably an easy bug to fix.

    Congratulations, that's a truly fucking shit-kickingly brilliant deduction you done made there. Not many people would make such a connection. Few and far between are those who would see a piece of software do something weird and say "Hmm, might be a bug."

    In awe.

    It was a bug placed there on purpose to see if it could be snuck past you
    but you caught it without flinching, so another bug has been added to see it it can get by you.

    Why is your system in CDT when Feb 17 2020 is CST?

    I doubt your TZ setting is borking it but still... DST starts on March 8 in
    the US for those areas that observe it.

    Probably just over-sight when I initially setup. Doubt that has anything to do with it but its on auto now.

    Just a bit more information for whenever you track this one down. I haven't changed any of the default Timed Events. This appears to happen for MSGMAINT on Sundays where it's supposed to run at 5:00. I get the time reduced message when logging in and the ^T gives all the correct information at that time, it's when it hits after midnight, going into Monday where ^T showed me the exact upcoming event date/time info for 1969.
