I occasionally find myself wanting to re-read one of the replies to a question I asked some time ago.

Unfortunately, the only way I've found of doing this is to first locate any post I've made on the forums so that I can access the 'Profile' page and from there the 'View recent Posts' link.

As I'm not a frequent poster of questions, I've first got to find a post I've made... (spot the infinate loop).

Have I missed a link somewhere that would enable me to see recent posts without having to first find another post that I've made?

Another way is to click on the 'My Profile' link near the top, then choose 'View/Update Profie' on the next page shown.

On your Update Profile page, near the bottom of the page, you will see 'Profile last updated by XXXXX' with a link to your profile, clicking on which will take you to your profile page, with a link to your recent posts.

Kinda kludgy, but easier than searching for a post that you made 2 weeks ago

'Profile last updated by XXXXX'

That works as long as you are the last person to edit your own profile. for a long time, EFH was the last to have edited mine.

i don't have enough time to read all of his recents posts (as good as they are)

If you make a small edit to your own profile, it will fix that problem.
