Hello-

Looking at my recent posts list, it has the following:

A simple syntax question, pls help (post #000001) Java in General (beginner) 08-13-2005

I have not posted into that thread (the thread view looks to be correct). Might be something to look into.

Cheers,
Ulf

Hi Ulf,

We see this on rare occassions when somebody (such as yourself) posts a new topic, which is then deleted before anybody else creates a new post. The forum software then reuses the post number for the next person who posts, and lists it amongst your posts.

Do you think this could be the explanation?

Regards, Andrew

I did delete a post, so I guess this could explain it. Not a very satisfactory explanation from an information systems point of view, of course :-)

What, you mean not every program out there is perfect?
