Bug with "Turn" in the "Player History" dump
 
Sorry if this is a duplicate, but I didn't see it:

In a 3.5.0 character dump, the "Turn" column in the "Player History" dump is messed up. I don't quite understand what triggers the problem, but you can see the effect in almost all the 3.5.0 dumps posted to the Ladder or to the competion 151 page: for some reason, the Turn number goes bad, and you wind up with many entries in a row all with the same Turn number.

I suspect that there's a bug either when saving or when loading a savefile that causes saved history items to get marked with the current turn count when loaded.

Don't be silly! This is obviously a hole in the space time continuum. If I had to guess, it was probably caused by a very massive object passing through our solar system at near right angles to us (of course, I'm not an expert, but given that we are sphere -- more or less -- wouldn't any object pass through our solar system at a near right angle to some part of this planet?)

Yeah, I think you mean at a near right angle to the plane of the ecliptic, but I indeed remember reading something about that in a recent edition of Nature or the Astrophysical Journal. It caused havoc in Speed boot generation as well. You might very well have sussed it out!
