>Many of the earlier files that I looked at, though, were dated much earlier, and there were no new messages in their threads.

Hmm, if you could point one out, I'd love to take a look at it. You're right to note that it does matter that there isn't a later post in the thread, because that would cause the (old) file to be updated.

> On the other hand, you have a modified version of the script running here, so it might help if I could see precisely what modifications have been made. Are you using any addins from other sources to allow the features like email notification?

Done it all myself. I just didn't know about any add-ins! If you're up for more distraction, send me your email address, and I'll send you the script. Two heads are better than one. :-)

>It's a weird one, especially since the "zeroing out" issue would be a server problem, not a script problem.

Are you sure? If the script malfunctions after opening the file, but before writing it, won't the file end up zeroed?

> > >Hm... I also notice today that some of the threads are very different: DL's answer to me is now a separate thread, though it was part of the main thread on Sunday.

Huh, what do you know. I hope that happened when I was trying to put things back together (rather than because of a bug in the script). But if they didn't go back together right, that means there was a bug earlier on...

> > Some posts do seem to have been eaten, but I don't think in the above way (I haven't seen different posts with the same ID). I think that was one bug I did manage to catch.

Nope = you've seen two posts here with the same ID?

> That does bring up another question though: can you move to using CGIWrap on this page? If so, it eliminates a few potential problem areas right from the start. You won't need to open your script to the world, you can protect your data and your directories better, and so on.

Is the script open to the world now? :-)

>Talk to your sys admin about it, and if they don't have it set up, you should be able to set it up yourself. Barring that, of course, you could do what I did to begin with: leave the 777 permissions on the board files...

What 777 permissions? :-)
