It was a Unix/Linux thing.
That was caused when, for some reason, the forum didn't have a record of the time of a post, so it defaulted to the earliest possible time.
Time starts for Unix/Linux at 00:00:00.0 on 1 January, 1970.
Your time zone setting moved it backwards.

This is the Unix Linux reason.... ATS/ BTS server is probably a Unix server

I can confirm the "epoch" date issue, coming from a UNIX background.

1969 AT&T Bell Laboratories develop Unix


www.computerhope.com...


this site chronologically follows the development of computers and Operating systems.. this time line reveals the reason for default dates for various situations like Unix and Windows. Windows would be 1980 for instance ..linux 1970 but backdated to december 31 1969 by time zone coding

I hope this fully explains this MYSTERY


oh and time() to you too

In some of the past games events on ATS, there have been accounts created for giving clues.......those accounts have also had that date, I believe......That might not be the reason this one does, but that date has shown up before during 'hunts'.......

and this link will explain the date command in unix
www.computerhope.com...


Examples

date - Would list the date and time of the server. Below is an example of the output.

Thu Feb 8 16:47:32 MST 2001

date -s "11/20/2003 12:48:00" - Set the date to the date and time shown.

date '+DATE: %m/%d/%y%nTIME:%H:%M:%S' - Would list the time and date in the below format:

DATE: 02/08/01
TIME:16:44:55

*edit to change time to date*

no answer,

but a question, could a site owner be using that account as a type of archive, for publishing past comments before ATS came to be.
in effect having ATS act as a library for all their internet activity worth preserving?
having then a single source, instead of listing defunct web sites and other forums, etc


?? of couse it could be the game afoot as several suggest

No, it's because no one logged in with the account. Hellmutt said that. You didn't explain anything. But think whatever you want to think.

there was confusion as to why the date december 31,1969 showed up
it the default date for unix is 0 hour jan 1st 1970 but because of the time zone setting .. it .backed up to December 31 1969 that was confirmed in the next post

there's no sign up date in the database therefore there might not be an account
when the php script ? queried that field it returned date(void) and defaulted so if it is an account its database records are not complete thats why it all blank in spots no points and stuff no nic it could be files dump in someones folder to like a repository or reference files you would have get the info from the big guys on that really i don't care the sign up date thing tweaked my brain because that date triggered unix linux memories I'm running linux right now so.... i haven't databased in years so i flashed at first to y2k and 00 problem.
