Gotta keep cookies, or you'll have to log in each time instead of having our site remember you. That is, state is stored here in the database, but your username is in a cookie so you don't have to login all the time...
Being a semi-computer-literate "Luddite", as best I can tell it's:
1) Dell Precision 610
2) Windows NT
3) Internet explorer
I get the same message when trying to read other sites sometimes too. When I get to this chat room, I can't see anything I wrote, or anyone else wrote. Thanks for the help. I think I'm gonna go get my IT guys and see if they can help.
