A query about the ARRSE toolbar

#1
I still love the ARRSE toolbar and all the options it offers, but in the bit where you can access your e-mail account(s), I have the two envelopes one over the other and immediately behind that comes the abbreviation [NaN], where there used to be a summation of unread e-mails. I can still access my e-mails without any problems via the drop-down menu, but what does this signify exactly? I've had a bit of a butcher's on t'internet, but can't find the abbreviation anywhere.

Any of the ARRSE IT-whizzes got any ideas?

NaN error = Not a Number

Coding problem perhaps...
Cheers indeed for that, mucker. Very much appreciated. Does that mean I have some sort of long/medium/short-term problem or not?

I've also no idea what a "coding problem" is.

Not your problem.. The 'code' that makes the thing work is looking for a number of unread mails and comes up with a 'character' or something else that is 'Not a Number' and by default reports this error with 'NaN'

The developer of the toolbar will have to correct this.

'Code' is the meaningless gobleygook that software geeks write ;)

Bugsy, PM BFG 9000. He wrote the code after all and A. might not be aware of it happening and B. should be able to correct it.

Many thanks to both Ulster_Rifleman and Sixty for taking the trouble to reply.

I will indeed get in touch with BFG 9000, just to make him aware of the "problem" - if it's indeed a "problem" at all. As I previously stated, all the normal functions of the toolbar are readily available, I was just wondering about this little bit because it dipped from the "norm" (i.e. what I was used to and what I expected) about two months ago.

Again, my gratitude to both of you for bothering to respond.
