    Why such a short life-span for my log-in cookie when I specified "Forever" on the log-in? Pete

    I checked my cookie and it is set to expire in 1 year. I believe forever in this forum software actually translates to 365 days, so mine says 1/3/2005 at the moment.

    Pete, your's looks like it was placed by way of the 90 minute default login time. I don't know why you got a 90 minute cookie instead of forever, but you do have a lot of different and powerful protections and privacy settings, it's possible something got in the way at login time.

    This is the other cookie I have (probably the same one LWM is referring to).

    Perhaps when I had to do the login2 in IE, it just gave me a short-term version?

    Ah, there you go. :cool:

    Now of course that means you have to say online until that cookie expires, which is now about 364 days 23 hours and 37 minutes. Sorry, those are the rules. :D
