Skip to comments.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?
Are you logged in?
Is your battery low?
I’ve gotten this for the last 2-3 months (and yes, I’m logged in).
> Is your battery low?
Hope you’re not a diagnostic engineer.
I’m beginning to suspect a deleted or missing cookie.
I think people actually stopped using this joke some time ago ;)
Jim is trying to Zot you and hit the wrong button.
Sorry to break it to you this way...he was going to tell you tomorrow, I’m sure. ;)
> Try Control-Alt-Delete.
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.
> Are you logged in?
Couldn’t post or reply if I wasn’t logged in.
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.
The solution to this and many other FR issues:

Finally, an intelligent answer.
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.)
I never noticed the Activity and Comments button until now.
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. ?????
I’m still looking for the ‘anykey’ they always say to push...
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.
(Robt cleverly and circumspectfully refuses to be drawn and quartered into publick discusses of tax-chicks’ monthly donation functions ....)
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.
(What’s John’s favorite ratio of lines-of-code/six-packs-of-beverage estimated to be? 8<)
