digitalmars.D.announce - news.digitalmars.com server has a wrong date

I'm sorry to use this group to report this but I failed at looking for
a better place to do so (including mailing Walter).

The news.digitalmars.com server seems to have the date set incorrectly,
so I'm getting a very annoying message complaining about that (which
I cannot silence).

Is there any way to get this fixed? Is there a better place to report
this kind of infrastructure problems?

Thanks.

I'll take it with our provider. What's the error message, OS, client program etc? Thanks, Andrei

Ah no I'm wrong, I thought it said duration < dur!"seconds"(1). Quite curious how duration can end up being less than 0.

Easy. It's negative. For instance, if you subtract now from tomorrow, the result would be negative. So, if the code is subtracting the current time from some other time, and the result is negative, then the other time is in the future as that line indicates. - Jonathan M Davis
