    Scott,
    The board is not remembering my user name when I connect to http://letsgotech.com/roundtable/index.php. Without logging in, when I click on link to a forum, it does remember who I am.

    Mild annoyance, but thought you should be aware.

    For your notes I'm using Firefox when I notice the problem, will check with Safari when I get a chance.
    If I don't see you in the future, I'll see you in the pasture.

    Is your browser set to delete your cookies when you shut it down? See if you can reproduce the issue when connecting to http://www.letsgotech.com/roundtable/index.php (note the "www")

    I'll check it out later today. Thanks for the heads-up!

      I've figured out the problem: when you log into the Roundtable, you can do so from either www.letsgotech.com/roundtable or letsgotech.com/roundtable (or vice versa). However, logging into one does not also log you into the other, even though they're the same site. This has to do with how cookies are handled, but I don't want to get into a big technical explanation here.

      I'm going to try to work around this by having one of the "sites" redirect you to the other -- i.e. the "www" to the "no www", or vice versa. However, this means that for the folks who log into "www.letsgotech.com/roundtable/", they'll have to log in again to "letsgotech.com/roundtable/" (or vice versa). Remember, they're the exact same site; one just has a "www." on it, and the other doesn't. (For the technically minded: do an nslookup on both www.letsgotech.com and letsgotech.com; you'll see they both resolve to the same IP address)
