Default You last visited: December 31st 1969

Welcome to the Unix epoch.

Dates are stored in the database as a unix time stamp, which counts seconds, or miliseconds, or something dorkier than that like light years or something since .... guess when?

January 1, 1970.

when members of the old board were imported into this new board, their last login timestamp got set to 0.

a unix time stamp of all 0's would register as Midnight, Dec 31st, 1969. so adjusting for your time zone you just sang Auld Lang Syne.

I'll try and explain It.

What he is trying to say is that when they updated to the new poast bored there was trouble converting peoples old dates to new ones.

He explained why it happened--which is hard to understand If you havn't messed around with the operating systems Linux or Unix (An Operating system is a program like Windows XP)

Zainy old Unix.

Hmmmmm... So that's why when you check the band members' names it says December 31, 1969... I get it now!!!
