Content has expired and can no longer be used error in share point 2013

I intermittently experienced the following error page on SharePoint 2013.

The resolution for this is to simply update your web applications' time zone to match that of your SharePoint servers. (Validate all servers are set to same time zone)
To fix this go to Central Administration -> Application Management -> select Web application -> on the ribbon General settings tab -> select General settings -> update the time zone with the share point server(s). Then perform IIS reset (iisreset -noforce) on each server in the farm.

SharePoint 2013 with SP1 ("slipstream") is now available for download

You can now download SharePoint 2013 with SP1 from MSDN and VLSC and MPN.

A couple of people already tried to create their own slipstream version using RTM and SP1. Please avoid doing this as this is unsupported due to a change in the package layout which was introduced with March 2013 PU. Due to this change in the package layout it is not guaranteed that the manually created slipstream version will update all modules correctly. Ensure to download the official SharePoint 2013 with SP1 from one of the above listed sites.
