The recent queries view in the data explorer seems to be broken. It shows, since quite a while, that Mark Hurd asked for Quick Answers, zero seconds ago. The view doesn't seem to be updated by new queries.

Edit: Actually, if you save a query, it seems to be inserted in the list, but only after the top two lines. The "Quick Answers" always stay at top, with "0s ago". If you click the link to the query you also get a server error.

Edit 2: The problem with recent queries seems to be fixed now. One of the problematic queries was this, which still gives a server runtime error if called directly.

  • @sth I deleted it, for some reason it was a saved query with no underlying query, I have no idea how it happened but will code some protection. (simple make the queryid not nullable)

  • re 117 giving an error, I really should be showing a 404 there, I should sort that out

  • That Quick Answers query was mostly timing out (which needs a better UI outcome). I tried changing to Meta and the query disappeared. At one stage I saved the query but it didn't appear in my Save Queries tab.

  • @mark no worries, it can not happen again due to schema changes, also I should just hide the save toolbar when you start typing stuff

This is all fixed now, I added an additional "everything" tab for those curious to snoop on the queries others are writing and improved the tool tips.
