Sepulchritude Forum: The Absinthe Forum Archives Thru July 2001: Another forum software "feature"...

The error that Leela noticed is what happens when either the topics page gets corrupted, or one of the subject indexes gets corrupted, which does happen every so often. The fix requires me, well, fixing it. So it can last from a few minutes to over a day, until I notice it is broken.

This is the old forum. You can't edit here...

Chonger, If we put our heads together it'd be...

Wouldn't that be
"HEADER" ???? hehehe

Most 'computer bugs' are actually failures of the user (please don't take it personally, Leela - happens to everybody). F.e. when something goes wrong with Word, I'm always 99% sure there's nothing wrong with the program, only I am not able to figure out how the programmers thought I should think...

"It looks like you're writing a letter..." NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Woah, I take that back...I just tried it again and it worked! Yay!

Well, as long as we're talking about bizzare bugs.... I have the Absinthe Forum/Messages from the Last Day only link bookmarked. For the past couple of days when I've clicked on it I've been told there are no new messages in the past 24 hours. But if I go right into the Forum itself, there are plenty of new messages.

In short: Some posts that are written on this board never get sent as an email, even the system is supposed to send all of them.

Nevermind...doesn't matter...

I'm used to being around people who fill a whole evening with discussing mysterious computer bugs. Sometimes I forget that most other people are bored to death with that...

What are you talking about?

By Heiko on Wednesday, July 25, 2001 - 08:30 am: Edit

...the example was wrong, I overlooked it...

but you know what I mean, and it happens from time to time.
Not that I care about it too much, I was only wondering how those posts disappear - it really must be spontaneous, chaotic losses, as far as I can tell :-)

I guess nobody cares about that one because nobody is as crazy as I am to receive all forum-posts as an email...
I checked that I want to receive ALL posts as emails (not my own posts, I'm not totally insane...) but the software, using methods of chaos theory I suspect, filters out some posts which I never receive.
(f.e. I got Ted's reply to the German fellows question but I never got the question itself)
