    Well there is an option that keeps your name constantly and signs in automaticaly. If you check that option off then it will ask you for the name and password all the time.

    Partyboy if you go to a computer that you've never used to logged onto AR it wouldn't have your info. It's just that you've used it at one time and it's stored in the cookies of the computer. In the user CP it asks if you want to use cookies to store the info and you must have checked yes. If someone was on your computer and logged onto AR it would show as you being online.

    Cool Which means . . . (Cautionary Notes)

    The bottom line is that once you have signed on from any computer, that computer will remember your sign-on information. Therefore, if it's a computer which you do not intend to use on a regular basis, remember to log off after you are done using A.R. If you don't, someone can not only see where you've been (through the brower history on the computer), they can also use the board with your I.D.

    WOW. Stop there. STOP

    Man this could be the end for you, if she ever read all your post. MAN.

    Make sure she has no clue about computers at all or if she does make sure that you're COOKIES are gone. GONE FOREVER

    ok partyboy, I fixed it so you have to log in every time you come onto AR. It will never automatically log you in again. I am here to help you dummy proof your computer.

    Who loves you more? (Partyboy quote if I remember right)
