Today in Military History - wrong date?
« on: October 03, 2008, 08:10:35 »
Just noticed on the home page that the "Today in Military History" is showing date and details for 2 Oct.  However, when you view the calendar, it has 3 Oct highlighted.  Is it programmed to switch over at a specific time?  (knowing my luck, it will switch over after I post this and everyone will wonder wtf I'm talking about....like usual ;D)

BTW, talking about history, Armyvern is 40 today!

Yeah I've noticed that for a while too. It's always a day behind on the main page.

Oh, and :cheers: to Vern! :D

Hmmm, it seems to be a day behind... (except I just fixed it for today). I suspect this is related to the odd post time for some users... can't be a coincidence.

Noticed a spelling error in the calendar entry for today, maybe a MOD or Mike can fix?

1871: Paris surrendered to the Germans
1918: John McRae author of the poem "In Flanders Field" dies of pneumonia near Boulogne, France.
1932: Japenese palnes bomb Shanghai

Thanks again

Rather than open a new thread on the same topic...

Today's entry listed The Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava for 24 Sept 1854.

The correct date is 25 Oct 1854.

Re: Today in Military History - corrections

Not a date correction, but this seems to be the best place...

Noted in the entry for Nov 7th:

"1900: VC won by Sgt Edward James Gibson, The Royal Canadian Dragoons, Leliefontien, Komati River"

His last name is missing.  Should be Sgt Edward James Gibson Holland.

1 Feb 1900: Le Regiment du Saguenay: Dieu at Patrie (God and Co

This military history item seems to have an italics tag left open, italicizing everything that follows.

Thanks... the problem was actually much larger, somewhere a long time ago, all of our calendar entries were truncated to 60 characters... I had to go waaaay back to find a backup that wasn't cut short and then merge the old entries with the new... it should be all fixed up now.
