    Yesterday I commented on the story "Vista Delayed Again", being the first person to post a comment. Having accessed the page again today, i find it says my post was made by "dorkentoilet" ?

    A somewhat strange bug i must say :suprised:

    Nope, no idea from me. IP addresses are exactly the same. Maybe EP will know or at least pretend to know :p

    Yes, if you could link the comment or news post that would be great.

    If you have a wireless network set up with out a wep encryption, its posible that some one jumped on your singnal and also was a ossn member, or the other way around. Just my guess, I use unsecure networks all the time.....

    got it, small int is limited to 65535
    so you have exceeded that number (through no fault of your own of course)
    will move to medium int :eek: which is substantially higher

    I don't know what the repercussions of this are likely to be (anyone?) but it should be sorted for you and future users now.
