Unhappy Is there a way to stay logged on longer??

Hi, I do most of my surfing during the day at work when I can squeeze it in as I don't internet at home. Also I am a slow typist. When I was typing the post I just posted this morning I was doing it off and on when I could. When I went to post it I discovered I was no longer logged on. So in logging on I lost all that I typed and had to start over. NOT happy!
Is there a way to stay logged on?
Thanks,
Rick

Hi Rick,
I had the same problem in the beginning.
I type with two fingers!
Might I suggest you try checking the "Remember Me" box when logging in?
That seems to have worked for me.

Cordially,
Gerry

Before you go to post just highlight everything, right click, than hit copy.

Now if you have to log on again and your post goes blank just get the cursor in the post to blink by left clicking, then right click and hit paste.

As long as your words are on the screen you can copy them before you do anything(like resign in or go to another page) and then if you lose them(your post goes blank and your words are gone) on re sign in you can always paste what you copied back in the message area.

I don't have the problem using Firefox. I had checke the remember me box and don't log-off. I just close the window. I come back and am always logged on.

.
Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
