• 22-Nov-2019, two hours later, it says "a short time ago." I guess I already missed "very recently" and "recently."
  • 1830 GMT still "a short time ago."

      1930 GMT "some time ago."

      Wow, I thought "some time ago" was for questions over a week old, but I posted this question today. Maybe the timestamps are as arbitrary as they are vague.

  • Questions that are recycled from over 10 years ago say "recently" don't they? You need to look at the view # in the address. before 200,000 or so are from the old AB. The reopened ones start around 300,000 or so if I remember correctly. And they go in order of when they were posted. So when you posted this one we were at view #3525870. Ice man taught me this. When someone answers a question it is reposted in the list as recently, I think. When you answer a question it moves it to the top of the list again. But sometimes they are rotated without being answered. Especially if AB is running slowly.

      That's good to know, and explains a lot.
  • 26-Nov-2019 "a little while ago"
    • mushroom
      Let us know when it hits "eons ago."
