    65,538 notifications?

    Great forum! One question: I've tried emptying my folder... Looks like no messages are there but check out this screenshot.

    Re: 65,538 notifications?

    65,535 messages of 100 allowed? Somebody needs to work on their math. How can you get 65,435 more messages than you are allowed?

    There is something significant about that number "65,535". I was running copy count gathering software on one occasion, and each driver generated 65,535 print jobs that would not print.

    Anyway Welcome! =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    Something spuriously decremented the count, from 0 to -1 = 65,535.

    65535 = 16 bits in binary,or the 16 bits of a register have all been set to a logical 1 (5volt).
    65535 is also the software positive integer maximum count.
    How the software made an extra 3 notification over 65535 adds to the curiosity.
    Some how the software has derived a logical "AND" function + 2 extra bits = extra 3 notifications above the 65535 integer maximum.

    Just curious to know how the error came about. Looks like a database semaphore flag was dropped.

    If I remember correctly from the days before IDE drives, 65535 was used to represent -1 for some of the disk parameters such as landing zone.

    That would make sense. At P.O.S.T. the HDD register IC's chips would see all 16bits on = 65535.
    Incrementing(65535)+1 from power on, would give the IDE hard drive track = 0 (bootsector)
