[thesite] [BUG] The timestamp on comments ...

as far as i know, the date is assigned by the server, not the 
client... given that, the client's time zone shouldn't matter at all...

also, if you check the comment at 
evolt.org, you'll notice the top comment is out of order, but has a 
later time-stamp than the other two...

my guess is that it's an error in the sort from the SQL query...
