# Thread: What year is it?

1. ## What year is it?

I looked at the calendar on the front page.

February =OK
4th. =OK
29 days in February + leap year =OK
THURSDAY...............................???????????????????????

It's Wednesday actually, so what year are we in? have JUPMED perfected time travel? is there a rent in the very fabric of the time-space continuum?

Or would you rather be a fish?

Cheers

2. When I looked it shows Jan 29. But it's right here http://www.antionline.com/calendar.php?s=

3. Hi thor,

Yep, that is correct, but when I look at the month-to-date calendar on the front page, it gives me the 4th. but as Thursday..............hah! you are in on the plot "Thursday" is "Thor's Day" or the day of the god Thor

Cheers

4. You paranoid old man... tsk tsk...

You worry about the day being one day off, while JUPM have got a far bigger trick in their hat: THE EXTRA DAY!!! From now on, there is an extra day between Sunday and Monday:
Saturday the 6th, Sunday the 7th, NEW DAY the 8th, Monday the 9th.
This is done in order to straighten out the leapyear-effects: note that next week is entirely correct thanks to the extra NEW DAY of the week!

Sorry, couldn't resist

I hereby declare this day to be known as Nihil-day. Quite fitting, even!

5. It's nihil day? Well Paaarty!!! Woot!

6. Yes, nihil you figured it out it was me.. all me.. well I bet Neg had something to with it and groovicus as well
It's nihil day? Well Paaarty!!! Woot! sounds good to me.

7. I checked the front page calendar, the full-page calendar, and page for events for today, and everywhere that a day of the week is shown it says Wednesday... I'm not sure why you guys are seeing this incorrectly.

Wonder what'll happen tomorrow? Will it be Friday a day early?

8. Attached is a screenshot of the front page calendar.
It's gonna be Friday tomorrow, and we'll all have a three-day weekend! Yay!

This is on WinXP / IE 6 with latest updates.

EDIT:

My wife aka Mathgirl32 just figured it out... I'm European, and in Europe the week begins on Monday. In "Edit site options", there's the option to set the first day of the week. If this is set to Sunday, everything is fine. Set it to Monday, though, and you'll get an extra-long weekend!

9. Maybe we should call that extra day AO Day.

10. This is related to your start of the week setting (it doesn't occur if your start of the week is Sunday). I'm looking into it.

Edit: Found the problem, it should be fixed now.
