When a person is rolling the dice, on the front page, and that person sees something that catches their interest, and that persons flippin’ finger flips to fast on the mouse button, how does one do a reverse so as to go back and see what he flipped off? Mousing on the back button does not work, because all it does is take you right back to the beginning of the session, and whatever that person was interested in cannot be found again.

What did you expect? its a roll of the dice.
If you gleaned enough information from it before the finger flip, you could do a search for it and find it that way.

I know it’s a roll of the dice – but – you weren’t listening. I said my finger flipped before I could get a good visual handle on what I was looking at. My palsey makes my fingers flip more then they should. Which means, if my finger is anywhere near the mouse, it’s going to flip. So, with that said, how am I going to know who it is/was, and how am I going to a search when it moves out of sight faster than a rabbit on a date?

You could try to do a search using some keywords on what you saw.

I’ll admit it is a long shot – but it is the best I’ve got.

Apologies Jim, it looks like there’s no way back if back if you’ve missed it. You could only look it up if you caught the posters name, or by searching by project type.

My apologies also Renners. I was / am frustrated with my flipping finger flipper over the mouse. I’m still new at this LJ thing and still tryiong to figure out how to go from here to there, where ever there happens to be.

Yeah, there’s no going back on the roll the dice. It happens to me (and others) just when you click, you see something great. The nice thing about LJ is there are so many different ways to use the site. It’s also one of the most frustrating when you’re starting out.

If you want a easier way (IMHO) to look through past projects, try this lumberjocks.com/topics/32790 . It’s all the past projects in PDF form so it reads more like a book. If you want to know more, just click on the project and it’ll take you to it. That way if you click accidently, you just go to the project you don’t lose it.

This is a really good idea. I don’t think that all of the previously rolled projects need to be saved. It would be great if just the previous one could be recalled by clicking on the “RollBack” button, or something like that.
