Hello smile

I just noticed every single pair of my sunglasses have disappeared. There were about 150 of them. Is there a problem?

They're all there now. Presumably you logged on during the period when the new rankings were being calculated. All the rankings drop off during this period, taking the sunnies with them.

Us old worlders see this every Monday but it would be middle of the night for those of you on the wrong side of the world wink

It was a shock to me the first time I saw it happen, but (as Snowman said) we get used to it. The re-ranking takes place about lunchtime in the UK - I nearly choked on my sandwich when I noticed.

So that tells me that the new ranks happen about 6am Texas time...not exactly "middle of the night" timing. It would be that time of day in Hawaii, however!
