Downloading Headers in Browse Groups

Post by Mibbler »

In the Browse Groups tab of NL8b1 (Articles in NL7), if I tell it to download a certain number of days of headers (e.g. the most recent 2 days) it takes a long time to find the range to download. By contrast, NL7 took a second or so. It seems like NL7 does a binary search but NL8 does a linear search, starting at the oldest post.

When it finally does download the headers, in most cases none appear. Recently I tried to download headers from 30 groups. Only one of them showed any results. These are groups that have many posts constantly. I closed 8 and downloaded the headers in 7. Back in 8, they were all there.
