Extended downtime on Thursday, November 21st
reported by CCP Eterne | 2012-11-21T14:06:02Z

The regularly scheduled downtime for November 21 will be extended by half an hour from 11:00 to 12:00 UTC whileperform server upgrades. We thank you for your patience during this brief downtime.


Can I ask how can some in the future happen, when the statement referring to it is already past the event?

This announcement said the dt at 2012-11-21T1100 _will_ be extended. This is being said at 2012-11-21T14:06:02Z. Same timezones on both timestamps.

Am I missing something here? :)

In all your nit picking, you missed the fact that November 21st is a Wednesday.

I heard that CCP has never ever gotten the Day/Date wrong in one of their blurbs before ...

With the increase in shiptoasting, the Report timer needs to be shortened.

Thursday is the 22nd, so it's a simple typing error & not refering to an upcoming past event. Let us speak no further of this lest it create a tear in the fabric of the space-time continuum.

That just happened, and we all let it happen.

OP you raise a very interesting point. Suggest you raise a petition and mark it as high priority, CCP will look at it as a matter of urgency.
