I was curious about this. My response was set to the time of 15:32, yet I sent the response while *NO OTHER* responses were showing on the list. When I go the last update, I noticed that a 9 AM posting was there. It was not there when I sent my reply. On several occasions when I posted replies, I was online to clients and monitored when my reply hit the list. In one particular instance, it did not show on the list until the next day. (Stopped working about midnight.) The other times incurred a delay of at least one hour. Firing off a one liner to a simple question may generate a lot of traffic, but I would suspect that many of the one liners were fired because the poster had the same experience that I did. No answers listed on a simple question, posted for more than a couple of hours. -- =========================================================== R.
