This morning I posted a message using the Blogging bundle to a Typo blog hosted on my desktop machine. The headers in the initial post were pretty minimal: Title, Blog, and Format. As usual, when the posting completed, the document was updated with several new header fields. The Date field came back as
-4713-12-31 18:00:00 -0600
which is, pretty clearly, not today's date. At first, I didn't notice this, and when I edited the message and tried to repost it I got an error message:
Error: Internal server error (exception raised)(2)
Fixing the date to a valid value solved the problem, but I'm surprised that an invalid date was produced in the first place. I've posted only a few messages to this blog with the Blogging bundle, but have never had this problem before. Any ideas on where it comes from?
My version of TM is 1.5.4 (1349); Typo is version 4.0.3. I can't find a version number for the Blogging bundle, but Blogging.tmbundle has a modified date of November 21, 2006.
