How to get my Trackables listed alphabetically?

This is hardly a matter of Life & Death, but it's a miserable wet afternoon here in Wales, UK and I haven't got anything more urgent to do...

 

When I go to my list of the 56 Trackable Items in my account they appear in almost alphabetical order. Those few with names in inverted commas appear at the top (that's OK, I can cope with that B) ) but the rest follow on down the page almost alphabetically. I've tried to get them to re-sort themselves by clicking on the little "Sort By Name" arrow, but it doesn't seem to solve this (fairly minor) annoyance.

 

Any suggestions, please? B)

If you sort your trackables list by "Last Log" or "Distance" the same thing happens. The list is ALMOST sorted correctly. Some of the trackables will still be out of order. I use the "Last Log" sorting and go to the bottom of the list to see which of my bugs have been stalled or missing the longest so I can consider replacing them and sending out the copy tag with a new token. I still have to hunt around in the list some since the sorting is not done correctly.

:unsure: Hmmmmmmm. So it's not just me then?

I was expecting somebody to come up with an answer like, "You just click here, go to drop-down there, select option whatsit, refresh, double click the blue button and Bob's your uncle, done."

 

As none of the helpful Mods around here have responded, perhaps it's just not do-able :unsure:

 

Never mind. The sun's shining this morning, so I can get out and play Caching <_<

I asked about this myself recently. One of the awesome Groundspeak Lackeys said that the "Sort by Name" and "Sort by Distance" functions will be fixed in the 2.0 version of the website which is currently under construction. Possibly sooner, but not likely. No specific time frame was given, but it is nice to know that a fix is in the works!

What in the world does "Bob's your uncle" mean???
Never mind, found the expression on Wikipedia.

For anyone interested, here's their explanation:

 

Bob's your uncle is a commonly used expression known mainly in Britain and Commonwealth countries. It is often used immediately following a set of simple instructions and roughly carries the same meaning as the phrase "and there you have it." For example, "Simply put a piece of ham between two slices of bread, and Bam! Bob’s your uncle!”.

 

Etymology

In 1887, British Prime Minister Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Salisbury, appointed his nephew Arthur James Balfour as Minister for Ireland. The press had a field day when he referred to the Prime Minister as “Uncle Bob”. Balfour later went on to become Prime Minister himself. This theory claims that to have "Bob" as one's uncle is a guarantee of success, hence the implied meaning, "and if you do this, you cannot fail." Another theory is that the phrase derives from the slang "all is bob", which means "everything is good".
