    I linked here from your email notification. But it’s several days behind your posts. Is that how the email is supposed to work?

    • Thanks Tom.

      Are you referring to the date of this post ? I note that it is the 16th Feb … which is odd – I would agree – but I THINK I understand. There are some other posts in the queue – which will emerge soon – and when they do – I will know if I am right …. then the chaps have to decide what to do about it.

        Hi John,

        Let me see if I can clarify. I received email stamped 4:30 am today (18 Feb). It included the Bertrand Russell image, which then took me to that post on OneMoreThing. All ok I guess.

        But my expectation was that the email would be generated automatically whenever there was a new post to OneMoreThing – but today’s email was linked to a post that was two days old. But there have been several new posts since then, and to get to the new stuff, I had to navigate back through the menu to find them.

        (Also, curiously, I noticed that the posts are not on the page top-to-bottom in the order they were dated.)

        None of this is a complaint. Just info for you in case things aren’t working they way you intended.

        TomE

        PS. The Clouseau clip was brilliant.

        • Yup – all that makes sense. the ‘Newsletter’ goes out daily at that time and includes ANY NEW posts from the past 24 hours – up to a total of five. So today’s newsletter saw one new post – Bertrand – and sent it. (New is simply that it is freshly published – not dated in the past 24 hours).

          I think Bertrand is dated based on when it was first drafted – not when it was published – hence the oddity of time.

          As I said earlier – there are others in the queue – including another one centered on ‘Bertrand’ for example … which hasn’t yet gone out – and I expect when it does will be dated even earlier – hence why this one is called ‘One Of The Other Bertrands’.

          So – I THINK it is all working as expected, but not as we want. We fix it by remembering to change the ‘published time’ when we publish – but generally that isn’t a problem since this chap and the other chap are pretty good at rapid rapping … we just are a little out of synch at the moment.

          Many thanks for such attention to detail Tom – VERY much appreciated … don’t stop.

        • Clouseau courtesy of the other chap and in some ways – as the post title suggests – the foundation of this particular trip.
