I've been out of the loop and off the `Net since last Thursday. Last night I loaded my LJ friends pages (3 pages worth) so I could catch up on what I've missed. I've spent the last 4 hours or so reading LJ, commenting, and posting, and finally got caught up on everything up to last night.
I reloaded the page to catch today's goings-on, and made a horrible realization. When I'd loaded the pages last night I wasn't logged in, so nothing that was on a filter was displayed.
I now have 5 pages of back posts to catch up on- with posts I've read mixed in with ones I haven't.
