I've got a todo with the date = 'every mon'.
But both on 'od, 3 days' and project view the item is shown as 'Tomorrow' (tomorrow is Tuesday!).

Here is the screenshot - http://s18.postimage.org/d5a36skp5/Todoist_mon_tue.png

Hello Dmitry,

please make sure that the correct time zone is selected in Todoist Preferences and on your computer.

Also, please tell me - can you reproduce this issue in at least one other browser? If so - which browsers have you tried?


Best regards,
David

I couldn't reproduce the problem in IE9.
So I deleted Todoist offline storage in Opera which I use most of the time. And after re-opening Todoist page the problem is gone.

The time zone in preferences is correct.

Last time I changed the subject task was a week ago when I checked it off. I had Opera 12.0 then.
On Wednesday I've upgraded to Opera 12.01. And now (as of Friday) I have Opera 12.50 beta.

At work, where I run Opera 12.50 as well there was no problem.
So it seems the local offline data got spoiled last Monday in Opera 12.0?

Dmitry,

it is possible as there are some issues with invalidating the cache in HTML5 which can sometimes cause unexpected behavior, but usually it's purely visual and the tasks themselves are not altered and clearing the cache fixes these problems.

Apparently, such issues can also be fixed by changing the version number in the URL from v=55 to v=54 which will immediately redirect you back to v=55, but in the process, the old cache and application data will be rewritten to the latest (fixed) state.

We're glad it works for you now and thank you for this information, it may help us deal with this problem.


Best regards,
David

Hmm..
I've re-checked the time zone on my PC. And now I am confused.

In Windows settings I have:
(UTC+01:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna
with daylight saving enabled.

But Todoist suggests all those cities time zone is (GMT+0200).
And that is what I have selected in preferences.

Aren't UTC and GMT supposed to be (almost) always equal?

BTW, can't the problem above be caused by the leap second of June 30th, 2012?

Dmitry,

it's unlikely that this has been caused by the leap second.

Yes, GMT/UTC/Zulu time are basically the same. UTC+1 is the correct time zone for Central Europe, but in order to have the correct time on your computer, you most likely also have the "Automatically adjust time for daylight savings time" checkbox selected at the bottom which currently sets the effective time to GMT+2 (even though it's still geographically the +1 zone).

We don't have an option to enable/disable daylight savings time at Todoist, therefore the current effective time in these locations (+2) is displayed.


Best regards,
David
