This one had me scratching my head for a while.

I've been looking at this site and finding that most of the time I come here, there are "no new posts", sometimes days in a row. Now I know you guys are a bit more active than that, so was wondering what happened.

Well, Safari V4.0 (on Mac) has a "top sites" page in it, that shows thumbnails of your top visited web sites. Turns out that when you first fire up top sites, it goes out and pokes the web sites in the view, which with JP1 forums resets the last visit to about a minute ago. Thus no new posts.

Anyway, if you're using a Mac and you're using Safari V4, you should probably not keep the JP1 site in your "top sites" so that you can keep track of posts since your last visit.

I've been using VickyG's suggestion of this handy URL:
It shows you the last several posts to the forum regardless of your last login date/time. I've found it useful many times when I accidentally do something on the forum that apparently triggers an update of my "last login date/time" before I've actually checked the forum posts that have occurred since my last login.

I realize it may not be useful any more to you, Bill, but I thought others mind find it as useful as I have.

Just FYI, the number at the end is the number of days that you want to go back in time. So, if you want to see the posts from the last 3 days, for example, just change the number at the end to 3.
