    Hi all,

    A few members have reported that their internet connection sometimes times out and they lose the 'X new posts' and 'X new blog entries' link on the top menu. To help I have added a new link in your panel on the homepage (beneath the 'You last visited on...' text) called 'View last 500 posts'. Clicking this will send you to a page where the last 500 posts and a snippet of their text appear in the order of most recent first. To go and read a full post from this page click the link beside the text 'Subject' for a displayed post.

    Hope this helps!
    // Frank

    Thanks Frank. As I am one of those memebers with computer problems, I really appreciate it.
