    Bob,

    I only have to log on once. How come you have to double log on?

    I never have to log on. I have the first forum page listed on my list of favorites. One click and I'm there.

    The site uses a cookie to keep track of your having logged in. If you've got cookies turned off in your browser, then mutliple requests to log on are probable.

    What I've done (Mozilla 1.4) is "Enable cookies from orignating site only", "Disable cookies in Mail/Newsgroups" and "Limit maximum lifetime of cookies to current session". This keeps off-site advertisers or spam from setting a cookie and cleans things out when I shutdown Mozilla, usually several times a day. So I have to log in once each time I re-start Mozilla, but using Mozilla's internal password system, this is quick and easy.

    If you've already bookmarked this site and keep being asked for a double log on, try deleting the bookmark. I got mine in the wrong spot after I changed browsers, and you're right, it is a nuisance. I got rid of the old bookmark, went in manually and logged on to this page, and then I set a new bookmark. Now I have automatic log in right to the list of current threads.

    Ray, yes, aware. I keep my yahoo and Adobe cookie as first 2 and then delete the rest of them every couple weeks.

    Ray...this is a bit OT, but speaking of cookies...I have never clicked to remove cookie files. I remove the temporary files (or whatever all those sites are that I constantly visit and have hundreds of them) occasionally. The
    cookie remove is right next to this in the same dialog box. Can I remove them? And what are the results I will notice from doing so???? I am Windows 98-2 and on IE 6. Thanks and hope I made it clear enough what I am talking about. Dorothy

    Dorothy,

    The only cookies you may wish to save are from a site you visited which requires a password. The password is stored in the cookie. Two choices; delete all cookies in one motion (you will have to log in manually to any sites requiring a PW at next visit) OR comb through the cookies and delete one by one leaving those with a PW.

    Dorothy,

    Nancy is right. If you delete all your cookies, you'll have to log in again
    with all those sites (like the classroom, the Yahoo! group, etc.) I only
    delete my temporary internet files on a regular basis, and the cookies only
    when I have problems.

    Nancy and Ray...Thanks so much for your answers. And I think I will just let the cookies alone!
    I am wanting more RAM...but my daughter has added all she thinks my computer will take. Doesn't think anymore would help me. I think I had 64 to begin and now have 256, but computer 3 years old and a 98-2 that was not powerful to begin with. I have eliminated everything I think is safe to do...but resourses get down in the 40's very easily. I have to delete a number of running things each time I boot to ever get it upto 70, of course they come back each time I boot. I get that is about all I can do. Someday I will just have to get a better computer I guess!

    Thanks again to both of you. Dorothy

    Dorothy, have you searched on any of the sites that let you plug in the specifications of your computer and return an assessment of the kind and amount of RAM it will take? A three year old computer is no Spring chicken, but mine is four years old and will take a gig. One site on which you can do that is

    <http://www.datamem.com>

    256 seems a little low, even for an older computer.

    Beth, my three-year old computer has a motherboard limitation of 512;
    enough, but certainly not robust... Chuck

    Besides, I don't believe Windows 98 (2.. means second edition ?) will make
    good use of memory over 512Mb. I know that Windows 98 (vanilla) won't and
    in fact, over 512Mb, the computer will start to slow down as memory
    increases.

    Chuck, my 2 years old motherboard is supposed to accept RAM up to 3GB.
    Unfortunately, and perhaps someone here can tell me where, but I've yet to
    find 1GB SD-RAM modules. All I can find are 512 modules. So my computer is
    now at 1.25 GB (512+512+256). And unless I can find 1GB modules, I believe
    it will stay there untill a new computer replaces it (and perhaps a Mac for
    that matter!)

    I do know there's a limitation to a lot of motherboards, however Dorothy said she thought hers had maxed out at 256. That seemed pretty low for a computer only three years old. Specs change, too. When I bought my PowerBook almost three years ago, the max RAM was 512. Thanks to technology, I can now get 1GB in it. Same thing with my desktop, which is now at 1GB, whereas "the book" says 512. Nice. :)

    Hey, Chuck, the "other side" ain't the "dark side", it's just another option in a world full of them! I have to admit that when MS introduced XP, I started to feel a lot more comfortable on Win machines. Not, however, enough to move to one of them full time. I think the best deal is to have one of each.

    So, Ray, my suggestion is to hold off until the second generation G5s come out, which is what I'm going to do. It'll take a while to get some of the rough edges smoothed out, and then - for once -I think I'd like something close to current technology! I've never had a state of the art computer, so maybe I won't like it? It'll be too fast and I'll have to tie a knot in the power cord to slow it down? :)

    To be honnest Chuck, I've started considering this option last year, but due
    to financial consideration, this project got postponed. But next year, I
    will definitively switch to the "dark side" (which is, to me, the bright
    side!)

    I just got an old, but still functional, Powerbook 500, runing Mac OS 8.1.
    That's cool, I mean, to learn how to do stuff around a Mac that is.

    Frankly, I'm fed up playing System Administrator at home to get everything
    to work. And Microsoft keeps sending one update after another (3 last week,
    2 the week before), and my hard drive keeps looking smaller and smaller :)
