    My cookies for this site aren't working properly. When I check in, new posts aren't always marked as unread, but sometimes they are. It makes it hard to keep track of what is going on!

    Is it happening to anyone else or is it just me?

    Dam Eco - and I thought you had been talking to Alice P Tokalas. I am not too sure what cookies are but am still having trouble being comfortable on this site

    Are you sure you haven't had some of Kimbos naughty cookies Eco?

    Actually I've noticed if I don't log out now, I stay logged in for the next time I come...

    Hi Eco,

    I'm having the same problem and have also noticed that something I posted today in groups is now dated 22.12.09 -- a few gremlins at work!

    Hi All,

    I've pointed Murray to this thread. He and his team will be adjusting things on the forum this weekend so hopefully all will be resolved soon.

    I too have noticed that the times seem to be a bit random. I wish I could confess to having the experience of naughty cookies or magic mushrooms, but I really am very square when it comes to my experience of mind altering substances!

    Cookies allow a quick login. If you click the "Remember me" button when logging in it will set a cookie and you won't have to login each time. Great for home computers... not good for shared computers.

    They also allow you to track things like wish lists when shopping online etc.

    It's the software you use to access the internet - like Safari, Firefox, or Mozilla.

    I'm having the same problem - the What's New list doesn't show anything, even though I haven't been to the forum for a couple of days. I'm not blocking or deleting cookies.
