    I am an addict here and don't want to miss a single post, maybe I need to get a life, lol.

    So here is what I do. I have this book marked like this:

    You will get all the posts in every forum that way, and don't have to look at all the forums seperatly.

    Then I just go back to when I was last here it might be 3 or four pages back. I also have the max amount of pages set in my control panel, plus have my posts set for instant notification of replies. You can get notifiaction of any posts you are interesed in in following by clicking on the thread tools thing and set it up there.

    Also I kind of think it is rude of people to post a question and not respond to the help they were seeking. Maybe they are not aware of the answers to their posts, it is a very fast moving forum and posts get buried fast.

    Anyway that's the way I do it. Hopes this helps the newbies or anybody else.

    I just hit the 'New Posts " button , click each page in order ( 2,3,4 ) till I get to the last page, start there and and work my way back to the first.

    I also use the "new post" option. But I don't go to the last page and read forward. I start at the first page and go back. I also will then go to the different sections and be sure I didn't miss anything.

    I like to be thorough, so each time I come here, I go to THIS THREAD and then read everything up to the present thread chronologically

    It takes me 9 months to catch up every time I visit.
