    As others, particularly wiseoldowl (and him, might I say, so eloquently B) ) have pointed out, please don't think too long, if at all, when posting here or this brain damaged forum software will log you out before you know it and your precious ideas, comments or requests will be sent to /dev/null.

    Really?

    I wonder if its a browser issue perhaps? I use Chrome and never get logged out. That said I always have to go to http://www.elastix.org and not http://elastix.org or the cookie doesnt load ;)

    Yep, really.

    However in retrospect this did happen at work on a "windowbox" that is restricted for "security reasons" to only run IE, and firefox (which both seem to exhibit this behavior) Opera is not an option.(can't say I agree with many of their restrictions, but some network nazis are a little iconoclastic). I was infact at http://elastix.org also.
    Thanks for the tip about www. perhaps that points to server issue after all. . .

    (a couple of minutes later . . . http://elastix.org redirects me to http://www.elastix.org on login (at home on a linux box using FF, and even after deleting all cookies. cache and Authenticated Sessions they seem to be back and correct. I'd try chrome but of course I don't have a windowbox here!) but then again I didn't time out, (I hearby attempt to negate this "Tip" it is pebcak (or perhaps local network policies) after all!!)
    This edited after an open editing session of a full 30 minutes.
