    Log-in is in the bottom right of the main page.

    You shouldn't need to log in over and over unless you automatically delete cookies.

    But I think Greg likes us to log out after each session, something to do with what happens to the server if you don't.

    Actually it's ok to just close the window. The site will automaticly log you off in 15min after you leave.

    is that something new greg? i swear i never needed to sign in again before. i signed on when i signed up, and that was the last of it.

    Just check "automatically login" after the login prompt... it will download a cookie and you won't have to login every time

    click on "user cp" at the top of the page
    then click on "edit options"
    then click "yes" for the second question ("automatically login")
