    Cool

    Cool, never noticed that feature before....well in any rate, after more investigation, the answer to your question is no. I'm not totally sure when it lists it that way. Maybe when person has multible windows open, I do that a lot...

    So there are 8 boards;


    C Board
    C++ Board
    Dos Board
    Game Board
    Windows Board
    Linux Board
    General Discussions Board
    Mod Suite (Hidden)


    Thats it? No more hidden?

    There's a Mod only board? I didn't know that..
    hey kermi3, what do you talk about over there?

    and what happens if you do like I do: have multiple windows and do different stuff in each one of them (3-10 for General discussions, 2-4 for Windows discussions, 2-4 for Game programming, and maybe 1 for C or C++ programming), don't worry, my connection can't handle all those connections at the same time (I don't slow down the connection, I have a 19200 modem, yeah, I know, it sucks)

    The session tracking facility (the mechanism that recognises you when it send you a page and keeps recorded info such as the fact you are logged in) gets screwed.

    It gets confused.

    As I understand it, there is a process that records the threads you have seen and the stages at which you viewed them. Move to another thread, and the info is sent to the server for storage against you details. The way this info is relayed is usually by sending a hidden field embeded into the page (not sure in this case as I havent checked). Thus when you go to GD at login you see what threads are new.

    The tracker expects this information to be recieved in a uniform manner according to the progress you make through the board. If you have a window open at C Programming and one on GD then it gets confused as to where exaclty you are. Often then it seems to revert to an earlier session and so the threads you have just read are marked unread again. It doenst really do anything bad to the boards tracker (at least I dont think.....), its just a pain for you as you cant easily tell what you just read

    Once you go the mod board you may never return...well that's my theory on why we don't see light@dawn round anymore.
    lightatdawn is always around...
    lightatdawn is watching you...
    *sneaks back into shadows*

    lol. Its not the Mod board that ate me. If anything its my job and my car. I'm here though, i just don't have much to say.

    My goof..... I saved it a a BMP and reduced the quality. Then realising that noone could view it without D/Ling I converted it to jpg.

    Another thing...how come all downloads are called "attachment.php"? If you change the extentions it works. Is there a mime problem on the server or something?

    Well I don't have much to say either really, not anything of any value (half of what I say is just bull****).
    Ramble on...
