    Question for Eileen

    I just noticed something a little different on the bottom of the page - does this mean that there are 110 people (as of the time I noticed) that are not current?? Just curious...

    Re: Question for Eileen

    Yes. A lot of people, whenever they forget their login details, simply reregister. Some decide they don't like the Username they chose initially, some register and never return. This clutters up the database and slows things down so I've just started running a script that weeds out the dead wood.

    <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Just being picky! (Does that translate properly?)

    If I'd produced anything anywhere near as good as the Lounge I'd be very proud! <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15>

    Re: Question for Eileen

    In some cases, such as mine, could you just merge the accounts?
    I guess that really means removing the inactive account and summing the number of articles written and, if practical, changing the identification on the already written articles from the inactive account.

    Re: Question for Eileen

    Sorry, merging accounts in out of the question. The old posts will remain in the database so you won't lose anything.

    Re: Question for Eileen

    What about merging the number of messages posted totals?

    Are you trying for another star, Howard? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Question for Eileen

    If you're so worried about it, keep the old account alive by logging into it every couple of months.

    Re: Question for Eileen

    The result would be an accurate count of my postings.

    As for another star, I would prefer it to be in front of Grauman's (sp?) Chinese Theater.

    I'm usually in such a daze, I see stars all day long.
