I browse in Safari 3.1.1 and never log out from MacNN. Nor do I ever wipe out my cookies.
But every couple weeks (or so). I find that I have to log in again. Is that the usual expiration? I don't *see* a setting to choose my own time-out.
That'd be okay, but your log-in fields *do NOT* "remember me" - no matter how often I check that box before logging in.

Is this a MacNN feature? vBulletin feature?

...or just my own karma?

Doesn’t happen here, I haven’t had to log in on this machine since the very first time, eight months ago.

I find that if that happens, it happens to ALL my sites, not just NN.

Exactly what puzzles me: MacNN is only site where checking the "remember me" isn't happening.

That's what i get from search in Safari cookies on "macnn"
I can't tell which one keeps me logged in (but which ever it is... it *is* keeping me logged in now.
I was expecting to some one that expired in a couple weeks - since that's about how long usually till I get (unintentionally) logged out.

Thanks for looking at this. Maybe it'll help my education in cookies/sessions.

You'd have to Google vbulletin and cookie to find out which one is responsible for keeping you logged in, but I wanted to ensure that you had at least one that was set to expire in the future. You obviously do.
