In the future ago …

March 18, 2008

If you’re experiencing a time stamp in the future … specifically “in the future ago”, you are not alone. One of the web servers is out of sync at the moment and we’re working on bringing it back to the present day. As it’s only one server that’s out of sync, some folks will experience normal time stamps on their entries, comments and cheers such as “43 minutes ago”. Others looking at the same content (but on a different server) will see the peculiar “in the future ago” time stamp. We distribute traffic to 43 Things across multiple web servers to handle the load efficiently.

It’s an interesting concept and I personally love the wording so enjoy it while it lasts. Ivan tells me that in about 2 hours the server should be synced back up and your entries, comments and cheers will be back in the present tense.

Sites are down

We’re having some server issues at the moment which we hope to have solved soon. We’ll keep you posted on progress …

update: sites are back up. We’re tweaking boxes today but we should be able to keep the sites live while we do so. I’ll let you know if things go wonky, but I think we should be alright.
