  • There seems to be a problem with queries that are very long, like the type that get produced from the “Details” tab. If they are long enough, the query never seems to get to the server. Need to look into that.
  • Got snapshots working, while procrastinating on documentation
  • More documentation – Index page is done, working on Desktop and Menus
  • Burned a copy with the snapshot fixes and blank-selecting desktop in it. Deploy tomorrow.
