I think (emphasis on the uncertainty part of "I think") that posts, even if new, but are older than 30 days, do not come up on the new posts button.

Perhaps. Complicating matters is that I just logged in again and it said there were no unread messages even though you obviously replied to this one, so it should have shown up.

Just quirky stuff, I know. But I seem to gravitate towards the quirky stuff. Lord help me.

HELLO! Hope all is well in your world.

I sure do miss this board.

I think some of the security settings in newer browsers screw with the BS cookies and cause this, seems to be worse if it's been a long while since you visited. Your cookies go stale

I thought my cookies were stale because I was over 55, not because of the frequency of my BS visits.
