Re: MX build 3044 - twitter uploads

No worries Mark, I was just highlighting it. I fall into that large group too - I get one or two tweets going through on one day and then go a week without any going through.

I'll wait for the next build - and read up on the new API in the meantime.

The more unread posts a user has, the poorer the performance of the forum for that user. This is likely linked to the database...

Re: Beta Testers for new MX build

Will you be sharing your source changes, as I was thinking about making some changes myself - namely the behaviour when the data connection is dropped.

the Met Office giving away free data :o
How long will that last ?
You can get a fair bit of data through their datapoint API. It's generated with public money so will always be free.

Freddie, Do you have Sphinx Fulltext Search index installed?

I've had a look and don't see enough of an advantage to want to install it, as search on this forum appears to be performing okay for most users.

Thanks for your interest.
