Don't think so Dea. Kevin posted this 10 years ago!!!!

Have you somehow reversed the order of the threads. ie. oldest thread is appearing first for you instead of latest?

Come on, don't knock Dea :-D

Think you may have clicked or hovered too long over the heading "last post" it reverses the order and this was the 3rd ever post on the boards - looking at the timings. When you go back to "find ancestors" they revert to latest post first! ;-)


Dea Report 10 Nov 2012 13:20

Well, I must have done something !!!

I tried hovering on everything but could not duplicate the problem.

Then I paged back to where the post came up and it WAS on page 1 but so were all the other early posts - then a message came up to say something about a script on the page not working and it closed down my browser and threw me out !!! :-S :-S

Never mind - I am back now ;-) :-D :-D

Oo-er - looks like Dea's had a journey to the dark side!!


Dea Report 10 Nov 2012 15:53

I don't think it was me MC - I think it was my 'pooter' !!! ;-) (Buddy Vista - I always blame that !!!)

You know very well that I don't like it on 'the dark side' :-D :-D :-D

Back O.K. now though :-D
