Why Can't I Be Logged In "Forever" Anymore?
« on: January 12, 2016, 08:41:29 AM »
I have to "punch in" every single time I visit, even though I punch in "forever". It used to work, now, not so much at all. :( anyone?

The government is watching you...  :P :-* >:D

PS: Works fine for me....
Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

Sounds like browser issues, or the mods / government ;)

I think it's a cookie thing, Snips. It happens to me too, but goes away when I restart my browser. I ave mine set to clear cookies and history on exiting, so I figure that's what is happening. Fortunately, I use a password tool that enters that stuff for me, so it amounts to no more than 5 seconds of inconvenient wait time, but I freely admit, it's a pain in the butt. Since it never happened before, I blame the forum, but hey, it could be me... :-\
