    I'm not sure where you're looking. The timestamps in the green bar at the top of each post form an unexceptionable pattern of posting. The "Local Time" field under the avatar also shows the local time for any given user, so you can tell whether she's sleeping or merely skiving during an ongoing conversation.



    y-axis: hour of post
    x-axis: breakfast to midnight, posts sorted in that order

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Yes, that's the local time for the user when the page refreshes on your screen. If I were in California then this post would show as 3:57am instead of 11:57am when I post it, and later than that when you come to view it but with the same 8 hour time difference.

    The last time I used a system which gathered all the posts for the day into a single batch and distributed them was... what did they call it. It's gone from my memory. It was on a BBS, I used Telix and SLMR for access and the site ran Wildcat, and the posting system directed off-site mail to FIDO - there, I got it eventually. Back in the early nineties.

    I was in Burkina Faso for a time -- in Ouagadougou .

    I recall that dialect even though I don't understand it .

    I had an email from there just this morning.
    I am Mr Peter Morgan Manager in African Development Bank (ADB) Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. I Hoped that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that I am about to establish with you for the mutual benefit of you and I. This fund was deposited in our bank by Mr. Kattan Azmal from Jordan who died in a plane crash in 2000 TBM 700 aircraft on 31st July with his wife and the whole crew on board.
    Apparently he can assist me with my cashflow.

    French, the TBM 700, made by Daher. I can't bring that crash to mind.

    Re: Good morning / Good afternoon / Good evening....

    I am still lost as to why Orion's posts are only collected at 8.56 .

    Is it because the sum of the three numbers is a prime ? All other times before 9.00 are not .
    Eureka .


    Why is the New Posts list a joke .

    A rolling list of all of the most recent New Posts would be useful .
    Or is every post moderator inspected and some are lost, others sent to Snopes for checking and some even to NSA for comment ?
    Where is our cloud ? Would my home made Direct Energy Laser kick some life into it ?

    I also tend to use the New Posts hyperlink to check what threads exist which I'm currently ignoring. A thread will disappear from that list once opened, until someone adds yet another post to it. That's why the threads listed there have "New Posts", in the sense that they have posts you have not yet looked at. There used to be a facility to see posts in reverse time order for all threads but that's broken - it's the "Spy" link under My Tools.
