I've edited my question on Stack Overflow three times now as I progress with the problem.

But it's not bumping to the front page when I edit. I gathered from previous posts here on Meta that editing your question bumped it.

Has something changed or am I being thick?

    Your comedic stylings are superior, good friend random, but your superfluous verbiage and the subsequent typing it necessitates have doomed you to come up just shy. Nov 6, 2009 at 14:49

    Now I'm going to have to ruin my joke by explaining it: That's a shortened form of the Shakespearean quote "Brevity is the soul of wit." Kids these days...

I bumped it and it works. There a so many questions, it drops of the list very quickly. SO's success sucks from time to time...

  • Ah-ha. I had considered the possibility but didn't think the question avalanche was as fast as it must truly be! Thank you for checking. Nov 6, 2009 at 15:59

Wow, the range is 6 minutes at the moment -- from most recent to least recent 48 on the homepage.
