In my environment I have to logon every time I connect. It also takes me 10-20 minutes to compose sensible answers most times. I'm active in two other technical forums as well. However, I post far less often here simply because I lose the connection/cookie/login status any time it takes me more than 10 minutes to get my act together in post. Since there often is no time to reconstruct things, especially *** it requires re-finding/re-pasting references. The other two sites have never exhibited this problem. Ever. They are vBulletin sites as well. I would like to hope it relates to some setting on my PCs. And not PF. Other than clicking the 'remember me' checkbox, what can I do? I cannot always be sure to 'log out' when some local problem strikes and I have to work on that. Remembering to go back on logout out hours later may never happen on that particular PC. That won't do.
