I've created a ChatterBox client pm-cb-g that uses the New Chatterbox XML Ticker. When posting, sometimes the message is not displayed, but when I try to submit it again, I get back the dreaded Whoa, Cowboy! You said that already. Don't 'reload'? So somehow, PerlMonks thinks the message has been sent by me, but it doesn't display it.
It's never happened when posting from a browser.
I have a suspicion it's related to the fact one of our servers has a wrong timezone setting. When the message gets processed by it, the wrong timestamp makes it too old (or too far in the future) to be displayed. I tried to study the relevant nodes (chatrepeated and repeatedchatter), but my pmdev-fu is to weak. Can anyone help? Would it be possible to fix the timezone on the server so I can at least disprove the suspicion?
I usually append #2, #3 etc. to the message when reposting it to prevent the Whoa cowboy effect. My personal record is #7, the last message was posted via the browser as I lost patients.
