First of all, I wanted to say that you guys are doing an awsome job with this site! Thanks!

One question though - Every time I visit the site I need to logon again. I always check the remember me box, but it doesn't (remember me). What's up?

I always use the same computer (my Zaurus sl5500 Sharp ROM 2.38), the same browser (Opera 7.30), have my browser set to accept cookies, and always check the box "Remember me on this computer".

However, I still almost always (i.e., 95% of the time) have to log on fresh every time. OESF almost never remembers me and I haven't been able to figure out why.

The only thing I can think of is maybe you check our IP addresses? My ISP assigns the IP address based on which computer I reach there, and they have many, many addresses....for sure over a dozen.

I am always amazed that other sites recognize me and OESF doesn't.

There isn't any pattern that I can detect that makes a difference which bookmark I use to get there...which is why I wonderr if you're first looking at the IP addresses we're logging on from, instead of just looking at our cookie files.
