During last few (5-10) days I had multiple times to log myself in to be able to access BOINC dev message boards' pages as 'myself'. Is it just me, or does it happen others too?

I'm logging in with authenticator, "Stay logged in on this computer" checkbox is checked.

from the same browser instance.

It seems that if I open this forum from other IE7 instance, I have to log in. Thus indeed something (with cookies?) here - never seen before.

That sounds much like session cookies instead of permanent ones.

Is the date on your machine way out of sync, probably for fixing an expiration issue?

Per NTP always exact up to few msecs.

Now it does not happen anymore. And it was just here, no other forums with possibly same SW versions (just guessing)? I hope it will not hapen anymore.

As the problem disappeared on the mentioned computer, now since few days it is happening on my home system. IE7 is not willing to stay logged in to BOINC_dev. Each time I start new browser instance, I've to log in (although I may still be logged in in other browser window). It is happpening just to BOINC_dev boards. (Will the situation similarly clear itself after few weeks?)

Again @#$(%^*^%$@!

(Local clock is correct I believe. It's here 22:47:15 +0200 now.)

Either that, or the bandwidth into Seti is maxed out. But I'll report it anyway.
