Hi,

Can you explain how the sortation on LiveJournal works please?

The reason I ask, is that if you visit http://thelovebug.livejournal.com/friends/ you will see that some of the posts go Jun 21, Jun 22, Jun 21, Jun 22, etc - which clearly is not in date order :-)

Thanks.


And his response was...

It's sorted by the time they submitted it to the server, but the date shown is from their local clock .... the thing you see is caused when people are in different time zones, or their computer clocks are simply wrong. I hope to fix this with the introduction of time-zone support, but that'll be a few weeks ... time zones (and accounting for daylight saving's time) is a bitch: each country (and sometimes even states) have their own rules about how it works ... very messed up.

- Brad
