Hip hip hooray, timestamps ! (in General)
August 29 2008 9:08 AM EDT
Just look at posts older than one day.
Thanks, Jonathan !
Haven't they been here for a while now?

They used to be "day only". Now they're finally day + time.
Well, I just noticed anyway. No idea when they were introduced.
But I'm willing to bet they weren't there a couple of days ago.

Wrong! It's been several months at least.
(Just goes to show that the complainers didn't really miss them as much as they thought...)

That's really weird, seriously.
I must get my memory looked at :(

Don't mind the one or two old geezers without a memory, Jon - we are VERY thankful to have these timestamps.
Or at least, I am.
The realization that timestamps were fixed most likely went unnoticed because of the numerous places in which they still don't show the time (recent battles being the one that I often check). The use of time for dates past midnight is inconsistent, and I think that most people expect it to be the same everywhere. So if it's off in one place, it's assumed to be off in multiple places.
