in order to log on... and anywhere else they may be *required* for that matter (don't think they are but not sure)... And if not, a flag that cookies are required in addition to the 'wrong id or pw' error msg would be helpful... db 'what don't want no steenk'n cookies' cooper

You can get a good explaination with a web search... better than me trying to explain it... It's privacy issue... and while I have no problem w/ that here I'm forced to have to go into my 'settings' and reset to 'accept cookies' just in order to log on here as I don't accept ANY cookies that I can avoid, which means I then have to remember to reset it back before further surfing... I have to do it at some other sites, but frankly I don't feel they are a necessary evil here... I'm pretty sure there's other ways to handle the 'remember my ID/PW' deal... OCTJMO, ICBW... db

At the moment there is no plan to move them server side, although when we move to the new ISP it is very possible. -- GB

GB... Guess I'm not making my point very well... the problem lies in having go into my settings and change them just so I can get logged in... and then try to remember to change them back when I go elsewhre... I realize the cookies used here are session cookies... it's jes a bunch of extra hassle going and coming... fix the dang thing to let those who wish their info 'saved' to choose that option which I assume then requires cookies, but let the rest of us paranoid types put it in for each session and/or each post like before... Thanks... db
