1) The today's post can be accomplished in the same way with an extra step. Click on SEARCH (like you are going to search the posts). Then put an * in the text box, and then click the down arrow to the SEARCH PRESVIOUS box and choose 1 day. That will give you all posts in the last day and this is the same as "today's posts" with a few extra. Most recent will be at the top.
2) The board has gone up and down. It is a SUpport issue. Seems the new board has a setting or two they have to tweak. If you see the THIS ACCOUNT HAS BEEN SUSPENDED NOTICE don't worry - they are working on the problem.
Another thing I noticed that is an improvement: before the "last time you logged in" time was always the same as the present login. Now it shows me the last time I logged in [b:1c63895de4]before[/b:1c63895de4] this present login.
Hey, I know it's not much, but it helps keep old guys like me from going nuts.
