    Was it something I wrote?

    I did a post in Scuttlebutt yesterday but today it's mysteriously missing. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Sorry if I offended anyone with the typo I found on my favorite weather site. <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>

    I'm also getting the 404 message when I try to look at my posts. I'm thinking this has to do with the search function, but was just wondering.

    Hi Peggy,

    Your <post#=253413>post 253413</post#> is still available - I presume that's the one you mean.

    And yes, viewing your own posts uses the search mechanism, so it doesn't work for the moment. If you right click the link with your name and select Properties from the popup menu, you'll see that viewing your own posts is implemented as a search.

    I guess I need to get another cup of tea - I swear I couldn't find it. Thanks, Hans.

    Peggy - I wonder whether the Lounge may, in its own particular way, be expressing an opinion on the quality of your contribution?! <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23>

    In the old days of the IBM mainframes, when a user came along to ask why their job had failed on the computer, we often used to tell them that it was because of "an error in their user name" (which was, in fact, a comment-type field which never got checked!). They usually accepted this quite happily, and were going to go away to retype it -- we usually took pity on them and determined the real failure reason for them! (But some we didn't...)

    Maybe it was something to do with the swearing? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
