Well, don't know what to say, except we had this out of sync date issue through multiple released versions and never could get it to work.. finally uninstalled it ...

Saw kras's posts on the subject, downloaded and installed his variant ...

Problem solved for us and we've been running it for months on our v4.04pl1 vBulletin and never had an out of sync date (off by a day) problem since ...

Your mileage obviously varies, but I'd still recommend others with the problem try that version, as it just might work for them as it did for us ...

Regards,
Doug

I'm having a problem with the birthday being announced around 11pm on the day BEFORE the birthday.
I'm on GMT+0 time zone, would this have something to do with the time calculations? when does VSA - Autobirthday run? i was hoping to perhaps delay it in the schedulaed tasks to later in the morning.

I'll probably do what I was trying to avoid all the time - add file to upload. It will make this working properly, based on forum time, executed once a day. I just need some free time...
