Default Wierd Dates

Has anybody else noticed that the dates for release seem to slip back and forth? I was going to post up a new change but when I went back to the page it had reset to the original. For example, AA3 coming out on the 18th was the 17th briefly today, and is now again the 18th. Most unusual!

I wonder if it has something to do with timezones and the server time day ticking over and catching up to me in Oz. Hmmm...

I find it best not to assume any date is correct until you can actually play/purchase it.

Well following Australian conventions for writing dates (dd-mm-yy) consecutive numbers in the time and date only happens eight times a century; 01:02:03 04-05-06 > 08:09:10 11-12-13.

And Henry, next one is in 2109 ... =p
