    Default Out of Order


    My news server must have a short in it. Has anyone else noticed
    recent posts are out of order in their news reader? I'm finding new
    threads in among saved posts up to four years old. I can understand
    it when a new post has a commonly used title, like "Dinner", but how
    many threads are there called "Prehistoric Ableskiver Pan" or "Hacking
    your slow cooker for Sous Vide"?

    This is simply a case of Luser Error.

    Not accusing you of anything Mark, I thought maybe my news server had
    gone haywire. Diddled around a bit with my news reader and all is
    well now.

    I made one post with the wrong date. My calendar
    was off by a day. Since my computer died, I have
    to re-enter the date and time when I turn on
    the replacement. Once, I got the date wrong.

    Google is having big problems lately. Their voice & talk (phone call)
    has had problems for quite a few days.

    Shoot. Is it really only 2:25AM? I'm using W2KPro.

    That means more BEER!

    Google Groups regularly stalls, stops, sputters, backs up and goes to
    sleep, sometimes for days at a time, as new and better versions of
    Snoopware are installed.

    It's been like that for me ever since I incorrectly changed my news
    server setting. I did reset it all but things are still out of
    order, and replies to posts are coming through before the original. I
    don't use google groups and this is happening in two news readers. I
    think I broke the whole thing by changing my news server wrong. I'm
    really sorry it's messed everything up for you.

    Don't take it personally, Cheryl. I think the only thing you messed
    up is your newsreader... this was a different problem. I reordered my
    list a couple of times and they finally fell into place. I think when
    people use common subjects, like pork loin or dinner, they should put
    a date in the subject to differentiate it from all the others and keep
    it from attaching to a thread that's four years old.
