Reset last pointers...

Hi,

I read these forums mainly at my 7-? job. When I get home I would like to be able to keep up also. However I noticed when I click on "reset last read pointers" that I am now "out of synch" when I get on my home PC (all messages are still listed as not read). I assume that you are using a cookie to perform the reset. If so is this something that I can throw on a diskette and take home and put on that PC so I always "stay in synch" and not guessing what I have/have not read?

TIA,

Brian

A solution would be very handy. I'm also moving between multiple machines. Back in the 'old days' of May and June, it wasn't so difficult to keep up. Now, two hours off the board and you're welcomed by a blaze of red dots.

You leave my red dots alone RC! Those things took almost 5 minutes to make in Xara3d! I almost broke a sweat.

I'm getting ready to do some system changes GWJ. There will be some core changes (flatfiles to PostgreSQL).

While I am doing that, I will switch from cookie based storage of the last read pointers to disk based within your account.

I have three weeks in mind for the time frame. Switching to the SQL setup requires some serious testing and fore thought. I've been working on it part time for a month.

Thanks, as always, Brett.

Top secret *major* update to the whole system in the works (with that feature part of it bill). In testing. Hope to have the kinks worked out and live online within the next few weeks.

Ooh, I hope so... I mean, the little Xara balls are lovely and all, but it would be nice to get rid of them once and a while...

Related to this, I've noticed that after my cookie gets a week or two old, it gets stale ;)... seriously, when the cookie accumulates enough information, the whole board slows down for me and I find the only cure is to reset the cookie.

Brett suggested resetting cookies to me the first time I had problems, but I'm now doing it routinely every time I can get through all the different forums I want to read in one session (not an easy task). So, I'm looking forward to the new system too.

:o

Love the View: option at the bottom of the Forums...but is this the solution? Synching WebmasterWorld between my home and work PCs would be a real plus! I'm not complaining, this is just my regular topic <bump>...every 4-5 months I've found is a good submission schedule for Brett ;)

I was thinking about this topic again recently and tried simply copying my WebmasterWorld cookie from my work PC to home...just to see what would happen. To make a long story short, it didn't work. There are a whole bunch of variables set in the WebmasterWorld cookie that won't let this happen.

Are there parts of the WebmasterWorld cookie I could cut and paste between machines so that I could synch my red dots?
