Presumably just a typo, but 409 is listed as an 04-06 finish on the site, and 04-07 in-game. However the death-clock is counting to an 04-06 finish.

Out of curiosity, what time zone are you in? The game tries to display the expiration time and date in your local time, so if a puzzle expires when your local time zone has passed on to the next day (but UTC has not) then this is possible.

This may well be what's happening - I'm based in London, UK, and we've just moved to British Summer Time, which is GMT +1.

your death clock countdown was correct, though, right?

Feel free to re-open this feedback if the countdown didn't work

If it really is the case of time zones, then it should have the same effect on other puzzles, as all of them usually expire at the same time of day. CFC, can you verify this? Also, what time was/is it displaying?

Yes, death-clock is correct in all puzzles, and yes, since we shifted to BST (GMT +1) all in-game puzzle end-dates displayed for me are out by one day (+1). Critical thing is the death-clock is correct - I brought up the feedback about dates, since I thought it was server specific; now I know it's local specific, I can safely rely on the death-clock. It'll correct itself in October, when we put the clocks back again :-)
