Missing Windows 8 discussion from 12 Dec

Tags: Off Topic
To document my exploration and maybe get some assistance, I started a Discussion on 12 Dec titled something like 'Windows 8 - Day One'. I can't find it this morning. It -was- pretty dry, but if possible I'd appreciate a copy for my own records.

I remember seeing it when you posted it, not sure what day. However,

if my memory serves my right, I think they had some DB issues and loaded a backup about half an hour after that.

Yep that looks like the one

Pity it disappeared to begin with.

Mind you after being logged in for a hour or so I went to post a reply to something and got told I needed to Log In even though at the top of the page it was showing me logged in and when I logged out and attempted to log back in I was shown a Internal Communications Error Message and a blank screen.

Took about 25 minutes for that to pass and seems to happen about 07.00 hours My Time every day this week.

I've not been able to log in for a week. I finally had to request a password reset and change my password before I could get in.

Gracias - Edit.

How did you find it? It wasn't in 'My Stuff', and various search for windows, 8, day, one didn't turn it up for me.

Edit - One of the reasons I dislike W8 is the reliance on search. I know my search skills aren't very good, but I just tried the five words in the title and still got nothing!

Pally Google is your Fiend

Not something I had thought of previously either, as I did try the Sites Search Function and nothing showed up, but when Taminkins Goggled what I was looking for at the time it was top of the list. Ever since I've stuck to using Google not the Sites Search Function.

If that's any help. :^0

THANK YOU. - And almost immediately edited.

Stupid Palmetto, trying to use the site search engine again. Hey, PTBs, any instructions on using it effectively?

Edited - No, dammit, it's me. I Googled the discussion title and got everything but. I even specified 'Past week' and / or '' on the advanced page. No luck with Bing either. I can't find my own posts with two hands and a flashlight.

Re-edited - dammit, I get more search results for THIS DISCUSSION that the original!
