    When I click on Tech Board page (3000+ threads), I see only two pages worth of threads going back only as far as 04/06/2008 but I can search the Tech Board for posts (such as my own) and get results going back as far as 2003.

    Is this me only?

    At the bottom of the page, in "Display Options" under the "From The" selection, select "Beginning" instead of "Last Month".

    The calendar only goes up to the year 2006? Damn... what if I were to be born again?

    Main page -> Resources -> Source codes - some of them give a 404.

    ( If I press F12 (should open FireBug) on this page with Firefox, it makes FireBug hang. I'm guessing this is just a bug of my FireBug. )

    Not reproducible by me, but then again, no javascript is working on the boards in Firefox for me (works in IE, though).

    I'm guessing something on this board is confusing FireBug - it steps into an infinite loop and finally says it ran too long and offers me to debug it and then it hangs again. I think it must be some Javascript part.

    At first I didn't realize F12 was my FireBug key so I posted it on here and... oops.

    I am not being able to reproduce it either. Though that doesn't technically mean anything. What OS are you using? Perhaps I can reproduce it on another machine

    Is 2006 the maximum year that the php db the forums are running on can do date math with? I notice the calendar is not the only screwy thing malfunctioning.

    I can only deduce this is part of the same arena of bugs that makes the calendar top out at 2006. Its ok manav, if you would like to post the date your registered I will be happy to have iMalc keep a running average number of posts per day for you.

    I just calculated my posts per day at 0.879. I have been trying to remain more active lately, but not necessarily compete with the obsessive Elysia or the old and half-assed active all the time Salem.

    Does it matter? Post where you feel like you have something to add.
    And btw, mats posts more than me.

    It doesn't matter. I just got curious since I was curious how close to zero posts per day I was. If I could have negative posts to bring me down to 0.0001 posts per day, I would.

    And if you didn't care then how come you mention matsp? (I ironically didn't mention him just to see if you would bring his posts into this)

    Your posts are all golden, for whatever its worth Elysia. So don't think I am ragging on you or anyone else.

    Because mats is a very active poster and mats's replies are often golden worth of information!
    Truly a valuable member. Worth mentioning, that's all.
    Besides, you did compare me to lots of posts.

    There is a reason I compare you two. You both usually are more informative than anything else. Unlike me, who is usually very unserious more than half the time. Or post code that is intentionally unusable for the OP's homework. Or give the OP a hard time for not speaking coherently.

    Knowing where I am kind of a pedantic jerk helps me acknowledge those who aren't.
