  1. Hey Brian, good to hear that things are going well with you
  2. Hi Joanne, welcome. I hope AS helps you to find the peace and support that you are looking for.
  3. Hi Chris, welcome to AS
  4. I have read that this is a known glitch with the latest Invision software update. I have read that Invision have come up with a fix for it. If you receive a PM or send yourself a PM the count should be reset to 0 anyway. I saw it when the software was updated on AS, sent myself a PM an it has been fine since then.
  5. Welcome to AS... it is so easy to feel alone with your thoughts isn't it. Take your time to settle in, post when you feel comfortable, no rush. As you have found already, just reading can help
  6. Ah, trolls, yes there are Internet Trolls out there... not so many in here though so don't fret. "In Internet terminology, a troll is a person who enters an established community such as an online discussion forum and intentionally tries to cause disruption, most often in the form of posting inflammatory, off-topic, insulting, or otherwise inappropriate messages."
  7. Hi, I know how hard it must have been to say that. Welcome to AS... it is a safe place to look to for support.
  8. Well, if you use Firefox and configure it to delete cookies automatically on exit then it will not remember you.
  9. LOL karen... you're right... there should have been a WARNING This post contains information which the nibblers amongst us may find upsetting...
  10. Ah, I've had some sugar and have reread your message... as Lindy said, yes the remember me checkbox. A session that would expire if left idle too long would be a useful feature (that's what I thought you meant on first reading). Does the system allow you to set an idle time on the session?
  11. It's back to the cookie jar... when you login you are given a cookie. The cookie is like a secret flag that allows you to browse from page to page... each page checks that you have the flag and then when your browser waves ot it allows the page to be displayed. These cookies bahave in a variety of ways... sometimes they have a short life, sometimes they don't die (yes, sometimes cookies never get eaten), sometimes they get scrambled and the flag waving bit doesn't work. Back to your question... you want your browser to realise that you have walked away from the computer and to prompt for a username and password again. Hmmm. I'll have a peek at the login options in a moment. Sometimes you can set your own expiry time on a cookie eg. 30 minutes. Sometimes the expiry time needs to be set at the server end.... but cookies expiring on people left right and centre would cause problems. I'll tell you what I do though... I use Firefox as my AS browser. That browser allows you to set privacy options to automatically delete all cookies, history and saved passwords every time you close the window or exit the application. If you walk away and leave it it will not answer your question but it's easy to be confident that the necessary bits are removed each time. Great if you need to make the occassional swift exit. Internet Explorer can delete them but it's a manual process and ... oops, I forgot to do it and got caught. I'll never fall for that one again. I'm waffling and probably talking gobbledegook. I'm sure one of the admins will jump in with a better answer.
  12. Hi

    Hi Macey, if you need somewhere to go then here is as good a place as any... welcome.
  13. Hi and welcome
  14. Hello, welcome to AS. It's strange how alone you can feel when you are surrounded by people. I hope AS can help you find your voice.
