    For the last several days I have been having trouble staying logged in; I alwasy check the "remember me" checkbox but still get logged out on my next visit.

    I have tried clearing my cache & my cookies & still no resolution.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    I don't use the auto sign in but I am having problems loading pages. If I want to view a post, sometimes I have to try loading the page 2 or 3 times and then sometimes it still wont go thru. It just says that the page is not available. Is anyone else having this trouble?

    Hi Condor, Hi Chook (I'm liking the two bird names hanging out together there!),

    I've let Peter know about your issues, and he will chase up for you.

    thanks for letting us know,

    Great news Wendy, thanks for letting us know. We've looked into it an hadn't been able to spot anything but do let me know if it happens again. We did do some work on the site on Friday so may have been some wet paint around ?!?
    Cheers

    Hmm, that seems very unlikely Burgo!

    I've asked Peter to look into it for you.

    Thanks for letting us know, and apologies for the inconvenience :(

    Hey Burgo!
    All smells fine to me from here. I still wear brut33 and it lets me in :) I'll send you a pm to investigate what might be going on.
    Happy Friday

    I have just got a new computer and am having no end of trouble with the pages loading on this site - they time out constantly. I have to use my husbands computer to read the threads (very frustrating). I am trying to work out why....could it be McAfee?

    Sorry to hear this Chook. It's certainly nothing this end that we can determine. We had some issues yesterday that was traced back to some strange happenings at Telstra and Optus...but they were resolved.

    I don't know about MacAfee.

    Fingers crossed it magically resolves for you!

    I look into it and see if I can find an answer. Thanks for getting back to me. It is actually VERY slow this morning, even on my husbands computer (couldn't even get the main forum page to load on mine though) - maybe it is our internet connection....although most other sites seem to be loading fine. hmmmmm.......

    Perhaps the cookie expiration needs to be set for a longer period?

    Hi guys, we've just doubled the session timeout period on the forum and also checking overall site cookie settings. Let me know if that makes any difference today. Cheers, Peter
