Activity Tab? (vanity)

Posted on 09/15/2010 6:28:30 AM PDT by Westbrook

When I click on the FR "Activity" tab, rather than listing the posts in order of most activity, I get the following error message.

Your query returned no results.

What am I missing?

Try “Control-Alt-Delete.”

I’ve gotten this for the last 2-3 months (and yes, I’m logged in).

LOL!

Hope you’re not a diagnostic engineer.

I’m beginning to suspect a deleted or missing cookie.

Three-digit-salute won’t fix this, matie.

And it seems I’m not the only one experiencing it.

As I said, I think it may be a missing or corrupted cookie.

Old jokes never die on FR.

I’ve always wondered what the “Alt” key was really for ... I wish I had a keyboard I could just type with. All these other keys make the computer go crazy when the catz walk over them.

We are down by one or two servers due to a crash in the beginning of this year. Not everything on FR works right now.

Well, if you eat at the computer, that's what you get. Next it will be ants between the keys, and then the dog will get in and lick everything.

But seriesly, maybe this is the tradeoff for the state flags' coming back.

That’s for Carol. In addition to being a supermodel, she was the creator of the Windows keyboard. (Coincidentally, I think she modelled for Tab.)

Yeah, cats seems to love walking on keyboards or laying on top of recently shut laptops (because of their warmth) :)

We have reported this problem before - it is a “real one” - and have been told that they don’t have the dollars to fix it:

I’ve asked but cannot tell you how much they (Jim Robinson, et al and his volunteer crew at Free Republic) need to correct the programming search function that is linkedd to that key. Nor do I know what database search and sort (a PERL sub-routine?) process changed in the server network that runs Free Republic that
(1) now causes FR to run and load slower than in April and May
(2) caused the root problem that disabled this search function sometime in May

Sorting the threads by the tens of thousands of replies by “last changed” is a very useful, very important routine. I too miss it greatly. We may need to wait for the next fund-raiser. ?????

This maybe the results of the crash that occurred a month or so back and hasn’t been fixed. I don’t click the activity tab so I have no idea how long it has been down.

It’s the one the cat took off and hid under the refrigerator.

I never use that function ... but I’m a monthly donor, so it’s not my fault it doesn’t work.

Yeah, my monthly functions aren’t a fit subject for teh publik interwebs, especially at lunch time.

I’m just happy to have the state flags back, and I’m sure John will fix the other widget before California falls off the continent.

It has nothing to do with dollars. John says he’s going to have to re-write that portion of the program.

OK. No problem.
