Anyone got any clues on this?

I agree with that.  If using SO gets more visibility to Livecode, that's
great but it's one more resource to add to the list of places to check.

I signed up for SO yesterday, created filters for Livecode and SQLite and
requested a daily email summary of new activity.  I haven't received an
email yet but I don't know what time of the day they send them out.  The
daily email summary will be my way of keeping up to date with SO.  If I'm
looking for an answer to something, I'll add SO to my list of places to
search before emailing the list.

I also tried the RSS feed but all that did was to display an XML version of
the feed in my browser (Chrome).  I probably need to change some settings
in Chrome to make it work, I guess.
