*"^$()%+ annoying new board habbit (for Gregg?)muncher

Yet again, the *&"£$)ing board has "timed out" it appears while I have been drafting a longish (5 mins) post, and it had now gone.

I logged in, typed it out, went to post - it kicked me back to the login screen, then cut back to the board. When I tried to get back to my draft - it tells me that I have "no authority to access that page" - and the whole thing is lost.

Is this just me - it's the second time? It's REALLY annoying (not to mention pointless)....
thanks for the problem description...I'll check up on itgregg

Unfortunately, yes, we are still having some performance "issues" with the message board software. In the past week, we upgraded the servers yet again.

Some of you may have noticed that you had to login again. I wasn't told about this until after I read that some of you were having problems.

The problem you describe is absolutely maddening, I had it happen to me a couple of times, and it just happened to be when I had written a fairly long message. Sorry for the inconvenience. Part of the problem with tracking this one down, is that it only happens intermittently.

Our engineering department is still working on this and other problems. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks Gregg - I mailed you on the same stuff, so you can ignore that one now. (nm)muncher

only on the "per session" setting - this is a work site I am mailing from, and those sorts of things are set at a level off my pay scale - nothing I can do about it. They have always been the same though (i.e., pre the "new regieme").


A fix, sort ofKerry

I've had this problem intermittently (but not lately) for a long time. I've learned that the last thing I should do before I hit "post" is Select ALL, copy. Then when the post disappears (as you describe) I just paste the message back in. Saves a lot of time. Sort of like backing up my hard drive.
