Ok, these phantom PMs have gotten out of hand

A screenshot of the BlogNomic main page, claiming I had “4294967295 new private messages”, has been removed. A wiki link is here: http://blognomic.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:Darth_Cliche/4294967295

That’s right, I have over 4 billion PMs, according to EE.

I still have 0. But your screenshot is messing up my frontpage.

Sorry…

4294967295 = 0 - 1 in 32-bit unsigned arithmetic. So it looks like you got a /negative/ number of PMs.

Maybe the server isn’t 32-bit.

I think it’s more likely what ais said than some weird sort of coincidence…

Let me look into somthing. Can 1 person, anyone, send me a single pm, and then post here that they have done so so that I don’t get spammed with too many?

Wakukee:

09-23-2009 22:55:04 UTC

Wait, but did you guys with several billion have any pms?

Klisz:

09-23-2009 23:53:38 UTC

I did not have any.

Klisz:

09-23-2009 23:54:54 UTC

PM sent.

Qwazukee:

Klisz:

09-24-2009 04:10:01 UTC

Klisz:
