a note on article dates

  • The dates from the oldest articles (probably 2005 and earlier) are likely wrong, as they were ported from a still-older content management system.

    • Articles do not show the article time at the moment, but I've been internally nothing date-unknown articles by giving them a timestamp of 00:00.
    • Just as this "five things" process exists, I had an earlier series of notes tracking a still-earlier porting process. In due time, I'll go through that list and correct dates as best I can.
