Thread Redirect Quirk

This thread was started in General Discussion and moved to Rifles:

http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/...d.php?t=397440

Oddly, though I have posted several times in the thread, if I click on the thread in either general discussion or Rifles, it opens in the General Discussions forum and shows ONLY the OP. No replies of any kind. All other threads are working as expected and if I go to my own posts then I can enter the thread as normal.

Weird, huh?

I created this link:

http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/...d.php?t=397440

by right-clicking on the thread in the rifles forum and choosing "copy link". Even though it shows as having 16 responses and that I have posted on the thread, if I open it I get only the OP and it opens in General...

Well, I think I fixed it....

apparently my computers battery is dead.... the date was set to January 1969... I just changed it to the correct date and now the thread opens normally.

Why that would matter, particularly on that thread, I do not know. Maybe it's just a coincidence and the date had nothing to do with it.

I don't think the date on your system has anything to do with it, but perhaps caching of pages was somehow affected.

I wouldn't have thought so either but I do get a warning that the date is incorrect and "this may cause some applications to behave erratically".

I wonder if the date being set in the past had convinced the browser that it had the most recent information?

I have no idea, especially since all the other threads appeared to be normal. Oh well, it's fixed now... or at least it went away.
