Glitch in MWF (or is it my computer?)
« on: May 04, 2007, 10:01:32 PM »

Hello,  Bob, System Administrator, Sir.

For the last few days, when I enter MWF and click on Show unread posts since last visit, I get a response that there are no new posts even though the symbol to the left of each heading is gold (?) for topics that have new posts.

So is it a glitch in MWF, or is my computer in need of a good spanking to make it behave?

I had the same thing happen to me and I put out the same plaintive cry on MWF :'( but no-one replied so I just assumed it was just my computer playing mind games. Especially because the next time I logged on it worked perfectly.

Mind you, it did happen a couple of times after that - but because it was my work PC I decided it was just the machine telling me to get back to work!   ::) ;D

Sorry I can't be of more help but I am sympathetic.

I'm on an iMac and have had the same thing happen over the last couple of months.  Given that it is an intermittent problem for me and knowing how hard that sort of problem is to track down, I haven't bothered about it.  But, since you mentioned it . . .  ;D

Michele, I'm sorry I missed that.

It's happened to me a couple of time, and I don't quite understand it. The only idea I have is that if you don't read every message, and you haven't clicked "Mark All Messages Read," I think the forum remembers that you haven't read every message.

Sorry I don't have more info.

Sometimes it takes therapy to put the past behind you. Other times, it takes a 20 gallon trash bag and a couple of cinder blocks.
