I think you are doing something wrong (again) because one of the
really nice things about the CCC is that your own messages appear
almost immediately after you submit them to you and everyone else;
there is no substantial lag as there is on the newsgroups.

At work I have a relatively fast news server, and I usually
can see posted messages 1/2 hour to 1 hour after they are actually
submitted. At home my news server is about a day behind. I have
the "privilege" of seeing my own posts a day later and answers
to them two days later.

Here the system is not far off from a chat room. When I hit
the "submit follow up" button now, my message will immediately
be placed on the list for you and me to read. If you do not
see your message immediately, perhaps you might try to "reload".

Also, if the system loads slowly when you enter, you might try
limiting the selection from "All" to 7 days (good), 24 hours (better),
or 3 hours (best). Then you can look through the messages in increments.

I hope that helps.
