Login issue update/note Answered
it seems as though something has changed somewhere. i'm pretty sure it's not my end. but with IE8 i can now stay logged in permanently. the only thing that i know of that has changed on my end recently is that i'm coming from a different public IP (ISP change) than i used to.
dunno, one way or another (for the moment) you've got one less person to complain about not being able to stay logged in
