Anyone noticed the info in the ACCOUNT Statistics was wrong several times?

I logged in to the new BOINC/SETI website and see my statistics in both BOINC and classic SETI, also with the new "certificate"! (cool)

BUT, I logged in:
On February 25, 2005, it showed my SETI@home Member since 6 Mar 2003

On March 18, 2005, it showed my SETI@home Member since 3 Apr 1999

Gosh, I don't login often but both info above are wrong!! My correct SETI@home Member since should be 9 Mar 2003!!

I really wonder if there's anything wrong with the transfer of member's statistics.....

Everybody ahs joined at that date ;)
Just look around beneath the Nicks/Avatars.

I think it's some hickup with the new WU-Count update, and they have probably seen it already @Berkeley. At least it's mentioned often enough by now ;)

Your member since date should now be correct. They have been working on it.

Even the fixed date is normally off by the number of leap days since you joined (2 since 1999) and your offset from UTC.

[edit] whoops they fixed this too when they corrected the dates. I am back to july 4, 1999 like I should be.
