    Default Timing out

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    What's the deal with the

    forum timing out a session so fast? I'm slow, and older, and need some time to get my thoughts together

    sometimes, and get distracted and interrrupted by too many things. It seems that every time I post something other

    than a "yar dude" kind of reply I'm timed out and have to refresh, re-login, and, if I remembered to copy what I

    wrote knowing that I'd be timed out, paste the contents of what I thought about an hour ago.

    Sincerely, your

    time challenged

    Anyone else have that problem? It

    could be local to your computer or ISP. I don't have that problem, but then again I don't post long posts much.
    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

    .
    For whatever reason, the forum forgets you when it refreshes. The

    cure for the problem is checking the 'Remember me' box when you sign in. Then you have to remember to sign out

    when you leave the forum if somebody else is likely to use your computer. This came up quite a while back and I

    looked into it. The issue is with the forum software, it's an 'Unplanned Design Feature'. To my knowledge there

    is no current fix that will allow the forum to refresh current user information.
    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
