Ask mods, why is the questions answered list in My Q&A in such a random order rather than chronological?

The list resorts itself in a very random way.

Maybe it's a glitch? But what's wrong with that?

Tried that and there are questions answered 14 hours ago, below questions answered 21 hours ago. I'm thing it must be a glitch.

It must be a glitch. I just checked mine and the answered questions are in the correct order.

I just refreshed the web page and now I have a 10 day old question below a 1 hour old question but above a 4 day old question which in turn is above a 14 day old question.
Very random, and it re-sorts like this every day. Its not a BIG thing but it would be nice for a moderator to weigh in on whether there is some rhyme or reason to this behaviour or if it is an isolated incident.

I'm on Ask using a desktop computer running Internet Explorer and my answered questions are fine. If I use Firefox, this whole site is glitchy.

It shows the ones that have been most recently answered or commented on first, so that you can see the most active questions in your history - in case you want to respond to the new posts.

Thanks for answering too2sweet, but if you review my comments to ancient_hippy above you will see I am experiencing a glitch while using Chrome whereby questions answered regardless of the original time answered or time of latest comment randomly gets assigned a new order on My Q&A. Again, not a big deal, just wanting to confirm a glitch as opposed to some random ordering algorithim.
I will try using IE 10 for a few days to see if the experience manifests itself in the same manner.

Even if you aren't seeing new content, it could be that something was removed - which would still push it to the top, even if it looks like there's nothing new. Definitely if it persists though, send an email to Customer Support - with a screenshot if you can, along with a couple question links and your browser details so that they can look into it for you. http://help.ask.com
