    but I'll ask anyway. When I am away from the BB for a bit then come back, I often hit New Posts instead of jsut refreshing the page. When I do that, I lose the rest of the posts from that day. Is there a way to just look at today's posts, or something like that? Thanks for humoring a "common tater". :)

    I am not sure about that - but, I have noticed that later in the day, there are multiple pages that list through the day.

    My guess is that in order to keep the stress load down on the database server, someone changed the thresh-hold for 'refreshes'. My guess is that is this may be why we have 'fewer' slowdowns and outages. I would guess that this has changed the 'behavior' that we see from the new posts button.

    Just a hunch. ;)

    Hey, all!

    Through trial and error, I found that to find all of "today's" posts, hit "quick links" at the top (under the VISA card).

    That's how mines work also, it does nothing but it does it so fast you can't tell it didn't do anything.

    The two different searches have quite a difference in the code behind them.

    That is why the "new posts" button returns in 0.035 seconds verses 0.4 seconds.
