    This is just like at IBM when hardware and software guys talked to each other. If I log out and come back to this site you don't remember anything. A lot of site would fill in the blanks when I start to put in my id. So in summary I don't ever log off using either the top or bottom of page log out but you are still dropping me for some reason.

    well, we haven't changed any of the settings so I am wondering if something changed on your end...either your provider or your browser changing or updating a cookies setting

    Could you expand on "cookie setting" as to what that means and how I might have altered that setting?

    Does your remember me box mean anything to the software? This knocking me off is an on again off again thing. It got a lot worse after you modified your site layout. I get knocked off plow every day? Can you tell me what setting you are referring to?

    yes, if you login and check the "remember me" box then you will not need to login the next time you come to the site...unless you actually logout

    Ed, You do not have a teenage boy at home that uses your computer do you? If so he may be deleting the browser history as to hide certain websites that he may be looking at when you are not around?

    not saying this is the case, but yes, someone else could be deleting the browser history on your computer, therefore causing you to be logged out of the sites
