help!i
« on: November 08, 2011, 12:20:18 AM »
I can't sign into the board from my laptop. I get a message that's says I need to check my cookie settings. Things were fine, then I just went to sign in one day, and all hell broke loose! I writing this on my Droid. What do I need to do?

I hear Droids use bacons instead of cookies...  ;D

This is almost as bad as racking to secondary after three days... ;D

Getting a MAC would be jumping from the kettle to the fire.

Says the guy who's never had a Mac before.  ;) All I can say is that every Mac I ever had since the early 90's still turns on and works fine, except for one iPod and one IIsi that the monitor went out on and I don't know if it works or not. That includes a Mac Classic that was probably pre-91 (that I bought used).

I've had two Dell machines in that time as well and neither of them lasted more than 4 years.

True, I've never owned one just like I never owned a Yugo. Some times the reasons are just blatantly obvious. :D

This has happened to me occasionally, usually it's due to persistant cookies, from what I can see. Did you try completely clearing your cookies from the browser?

It has nothing to do with Mac/PC/Ubuntu, FWIW - If you're trying to access via IE that's probably the problem; try in Firefox or Chrome and let us know if you have the same problem.

I made you a rant about macs vs PCs but then I eated it.

Comparing a MAC to a Mercedes is like comparing  Bud Light to Celebration Ale. ;)
