Good catch. Just adjusted the time.

Thomas keeps getting the following message:

Your account has exceeded its CPU quota

When I log on at the first screen it tells me I have the wrong password then when I log on again with the same one on the error screen it lets me on fine.Weird.

the CPU quota thing is under investigation.

Jan - what you describe is the following, I assume. It is security issue and you will only see it when you log on first time to this new forum (I hope and it is what I think).

Thanks, Ethan - Thomas and I are in the habit of talking on email, which is how he could contact me - I'll get back to him the same way.

The screen you describe is what I get each time I log on - three times today so far.

Jan - sorry for the inconvenience.

Did you check "Always stay logged in" or select "Log in forever"? Try that next time and see if it makes any difference.

You are welcome and thank you, tizi.

Try to reset your cookie. That might help.

Ohmigod, I am so stupid - I found out how to get rid of cookies once but now I've forgotten how - I am going to have to get my computer man in but he gets that look on his face and tells me things too fast sometimes - he evidently can't see how I can know so little.

Thomas got back on no problems, thank you, Ethan. I'll try the login thing again in the morning when I feel a bit more with it.

No I don't logout - one time I was able to just go to the forum - other times have to login or it has told me I don't exist or like ww, have to put in the same password (wrong password)and then will let me in.  Have clicked on always stay logged in log in forever at various times but still have to login the next time.  None of it is very serious and just takes a little more time.

When I click on new it does not take me to just after my last answer or the last message I saw, but to one later, and I just realised that I missed quite a few posts.

I am logged in as forever and I have to log in each time as well.

I would like to know about this "delete cookie" thing as well, because I cant remember where I hid the cookies!

There is a button to delete the cookies

I had a difficult time getting on just now... Kept getting this message:

This Account Has Exceeded Its CPU Quota 

Please contact this site's webmaster.

Wait a few minutes and use your browser's "Back" button or click here to try again.

If you are the webmaster, your account may have exceeded for one or more of the following reasons:

Your account has too many processes running at the same time.
Your site was consuming too many resources. This happens on occassion to very busy sites that have inefficient scripts running.

Regarding the CPU message -

Our forum is on a sharing server with quota. I took a look at the error logs (not understanding a thing), it seemed that it was the search creating this problem. We have lots of posts and when someone or even more than one is doing search, it overloads the server.

I am now indexing the posts and hopefully this will solve the problem. Fingers crossed. Thank you for your patience

I had the name/password snafu when logging on, but maybe because it's the first time?

I like this typeface -- easier to read.

My issue is, my avatar isn't showing.  Up top, just the little X in the box; on my posts, no avatar or box with X.  I checked my profile and in the space where the picture would be is the box with the X.

Hi Kathy, thank you for your feedback.

I hope the logging in issue is what you said. I really don't know. But the good thing is that you are logged on.

Regarding avatar, you will need to upload it again in your profile setting. I hope you have a backup.

Thank you, Ethan -- and I add my thanks to you for all your work on keeping this together for all of us.

Okay, I will upload avatar again.

Just now, catching up on PM's, I got an Error message "you have exceeded the limit of 20 personal messages per hour."  Well, I only wrote five, not 20.  I had 18 to read, but surely how many you read doesn't have anything to do with a 20-PM per hour limit...whatever that means.  Any info for me about that?  Thank you.

I get the logging on issue as well...enter my password on the main screen and it tells me it's wrong so I have to enter it again and then I get in. Log in forever and always stay logged in don't seem to make a difference....and I still have to log in every time too.

I'll try deleting my cookies in a bit and see if that makes a difference..

Right...here's some more info.

I deleted my cookies then opened my browser (IE7) again. When I logged in on the main screen this time, it let me in first time. I then closed the browser and opened it again....when I came back here, I wasn't still logged in (despite doing log in forever) and when I tried to log in, I got the "password incorrect" screen again.
