I posted a question (How do I read ERD Notation (crow's feet) to convert to Natural Language?) on Wednesday, 02/17/2015, but it is showing that I asked the question "yesterday".
All of the comments I posted on Wednesday also show up as being posted "yesterday".

In my current timezone (EST) it is currently 8:45am Friday 02/19/2015.

This may sound a bit nit-picky that I'm submitting this question but I'm curious about why it is showing up this way. I understand that "yesterday" could be interpreted loosely.

I went back to the note I posted and I see that floating over the date does show that it was 02/17 when I posted (2 days ago).

This was interesting because it almost had me convinced that I had written this up just yesterday. The days blur together. :)

  • Right. Could be timezone problem. I posted and read from the same timezone so I'm not sure. Maybe related to timezone server is in. Not sure.

    It works off of the utc time zone. Your day resets at 7 pm, mine resets at 4 pm (PST) Commented Feb 19, 2016 at 15:02
