Just a few questions, sort of raised from that rather lengthy, unpleasant, "discussion" in that other thread.

1. Are the bugfixes posted in chronological order?
2. Since they can't be replied to, (I'm guessing it's a read-only or admin/moderator forum) it would seem that this would keep them in order, correct?
3. Seeing as a harddrive crash or database corruption could happen, would it be too much to ask if each bugfix was numbered either just incremented or given some id such as a timestamp or some such, so that they could be tracked if such an event occurred again?

As a side-question for everyone else that was interested in the other bugfix thread, if #3 was implemented, would that suffice?

1. The bugfixes are posted in chronological order. But because of how the forum works, you'd need to reverse sort them to go from old->new. Right now they're listed as new->old.

2. In theory, this keeps them from getting out of order. Unless.....

3. A drive crash and resulting database loss has already happened once. The string of posts on October 14 were restored from Google caches. They were reposted in their original order, but as you can see, they're only seconds apart each time. I'm keeping a much better set of backups this time though so the time ordering is probably sufficient to maintain things. If it's not, then the unique topic IDs can be used as bug IDs, and a couple of people have already used them that way. Short of a catastrophic loss of 2 PCs and the DVDs the last batch of backups got burned to going up in smoke, I don't think we're going to have to worry about losing the whole thing again.

Heh. Well your forum is safe, since the DB data is picked up by the weekly full DB backup. But you should be making your own backups of your account contents as that is NOT being done by me.
