Hello,

The problem I had is that the date formatting in this URL is incorrect:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/userw.php?id=3339763

It says it is in UTC, but I think it is set in your local time! I need to add 8 hours to get the right time

Now I know that I am probably the only one really using this variable in our "zero day stats system" (original thread) I use it to prevent an unnecessary query within 2 hours (which I estimated to be the caching interval at your end). I also use it to inform our stats visitors as to how current the information is.

This started a few months ago. But since the structure of the update date (and updates of the update;) ) is all relative to several variables I hadn't found the cause.

It is not extremely important, but I thought it would be nive if you guys put in the right timestamp.. (please mention it, then I can remove the3 correction in my software)

I fixed this in the BOINC source code and deployed it on SETI@home.

I noticed something else, looks like a typo:

In the English version I see:


Account Data<br/>for S@NL - Eesger


In my Dutch version I see:

Account Data <br/> voor% 1


Ther [space] and the [percentage] got mixed up I guess ;)
