Switching to the -users list since it sounds like you're not subscribed

Without the original, you'd need the Message-id so you could manually 
add an In-reply-to header, but unfortunately, the archive doesn't show 
the Message-id's (which typically contain e-mail addresses, so they 
would have to be obscured in an image if they were shown) and most users 
don't know their mail clients/MIME well enough to use the info, 
anyway...  So, a new post works well enough.  :)

Bruce definitely was talking about Upcoming Recordings, but I think 
Robin may have been talking about the MythWeb listings.

Right, the listings page.

Actually, it showed that you had scheduled a recording of 24 that was 
not airing.  Again, Chris Petersen will have to say whether it's working 
as he thinks it should or someone will have to write a patch (to provide 
both pieces of information--i.e. with the "note" icon I mentioned or 
something) and post it to Trac.

Chris should respond to your Trac ticket, but may do so with, "feature 
request without a patch."  If so, you just need to make/convince someone 
to make a patch.  :)

Right, it probably just put 24 on top of Vanished, so you couldn't see
