How can I set all posts as read?

If you have been off the boards for a while, you may have hundreds of unread posts. This makes the View posts since last visit method pretty useless.

To mark all posts as read, click on the "TMB boards main page" link at the top of any page. Got to the bottom of the page. Above the "Who is Online" section is a "Mark all forums as read" link.

I wasn't sure where to post this question, but it kind of relates here. I am often interrupted during the time I spend reading through the new posts. It is frustrating to me because I usually have to log off (for privacy reasons or someone else needs the computer, etc. etc.) Then I lose my opportunity to check out all the remaining new posts. Since I am fairly technologically challenged, can anyone tell me if there is a way I can avoid this problem and somehow save those posts for another time?

I do too!!!!!!!! And it's HIGHLY annoying! Some days/certain hours you can refresh and refresh and it'll be the same list, but refreshed with new posts etc. But other days/times it will give you the no new posts! (Iknow it probably depends on the server at that time, or the amount of people on the board) but it's still annoying!

At the moment there is no good way to deal with this. I have some ideas on a way to let users reset their last login time, which would allow you to "start over". But it'd going to take some serious hacking and learning more about mySql, so it won't happen any time soon.
