I'm still trying to get my head wrapped around what happened and the short term fixes and the long term fixes ....

It sounds like last night we made a major breakthrough. And while our servers have been struggling for the last month or two, they are now humming along and being generally bored with so little to do.

I think we still have some issues to resolve, but right now the important thing is that we need to know all of the little details of things not working! So ... you can help us, but reporting in this forum, any goofiness that might pop up.

Thanks!

This is not an issue really, but something that I had observed and queried here before.

On clicking the link "Read new messages since my last visit" on the "Big Moose Saloon" page, the results that appear don't seem to be sorted. It would be really helpful if they are sorted, preferably by date/time of posting.

Here is the thread that I had created for this. I just checked this again. It still behaves the same way.

Pushkar,
As promised, Andrew has added your request in our list of things to do. We do have a lot of pending work, so please be patient

No No. I'm not rushing at all. Just that I saw Paul asking us to report such things. So I thought I would just bring this up again, so that it could be added to the TO-DO list (if it's not already there), for all you guys working on fixing these issues.

We are all aware that you do have a lot of work pending. I would really like to appreciate the efforts of all of you. You guys are doing a great job! Keep up the good work!!

Hey Paul,

glad to hear that it was possible to make some improvements to the forum software!

It's not very important but because you're asking I have one minor bug which I already reported here. Sometimes the RSS feed of one or another forum makes trouble with different news readers. According to Ulf this is caused by some beautifier which destroys the well-formed XML by placing weird tags in it. Some news readers like Google Reader seem to compensate these little bugs but others unfortunately don't.

Anyway, great work from all of you here

That's listed in http://faq.javaranch.com/java/SoftwareEnhancementIdeasAndSuggestions and waiting for someone to take on.

Oh sorry, I didn't even know that there's something like a TODO list for bugs and enhancements!
