Bug in AskMe Archives November 13, 2005 8:49 AM   Subscribe

When I try to page through my AskMe archives by clicking "next," the same results start each page and some older ones are added to the end.

That's what happens.

It shouldn't, right?

It shouldn't, obviously. The page keeps getting bigger. It says "Showing results xxx-yyy of zzz", but it actually shows result 1 through yyy of zzz, no matter which page you look at.

Yeah, it's currently broken. I need to fix it this week.

Don't rush on my account -- just letting you know it's out there.

Hey, I actually LIKE this "bug." It means that I can search through my own answers very quickly and cleanly. Instead of having to search each page of answers for a particular piece of text, I can jump to the last page (which has all the answers) and search on that page alone.

Don't fix it!
