    Default Token Warp-drive

    I cannot type fast enough to not have the "token expire " before Im done ,
    so I might as well just stop participating ,
    and just drink more . bottle dont have a fast timer on it.

    do others write everything somewhere else on their computer

    and just paste it on and send it?

    Are you referring to posting a reply here? I've taken up to 30 minutes to compose a message without a problem. This may be an internet setting with your browser.

    I don't know about the timer, maybe it's a setting issue, but I always highlight and Ctrl+C if i spent a lot of time typing, just in case.

    I sometimes leave messages unfinished for long periods of time with no problems using XP and Vista. I thought we had a message about this in the past and we had, it was from you as well. What operating system and what Internet browser are you using? The last time it was an issue with uploading a file.

    You've been around since we switched over to the new software almost a year ago. When did this first start occurring? I searched the support forum for this software product and was unable to come up with anything matching this problem other than a comment by their lead developer that there are several hours that should have to lapse before this would happen. There are other security token issues but not related to timing as you describe. I'm suspecting this is a browser issue or we'd have heard about it.

    I see you're on a Macintosh. This is just a hunch but OSX uses Unix time and if you reboot it sometimes sets the clock back to zero in Unix time, some date around 1969 . Might check and see if that's the case and if so, set it to the current date.

    I was just getting ready to post that. Check your system time and date on the Mac. If the clock is off it will cause this problem.

    Also, check to make sure the CMOS battery on your system isn't dead. That will cause the time to reset everytime you boot up.

    Oh yea, Mike? Just posted this from my ancient Mac laptop & FireFox with the date set to December 31, 1969. Let's see if this posts. It did, but I only took about a minute to compose.

    Show off, just because you can type fast.

    By the way, I set my system time to January 1, 1900 and I managed to post this messa

    I guess I can't type as fast as you can.

    Bob, Check the clock.

    Can you check the time and your time zone to make sure it's correct?

    I'm running XP media center edition version 2002 service pack 3 on a Dell inspiron 19300 1.73 Ghz processor with 1 Gig of ram. I've had this same problem with first internet explorer and more recently goggle chrome browser. I just checked and my time and date are correct. I'm not sure how short the window is prob. under 10min. Would reloading the page every so often help?

    I don't think so, I'm wondering if the time zones are correct here. What time zone is your pc set to?

    I'm not sure if this is really relevant, but sometimes when I'm typing I go faster than the characters echo to the screen, which causes me to have to go back and fill in a few characters. This happens more in Hotmail than here, but it does occasionally make me stop and compose a post in WordPad (don't have Word - believe it?) and then paste. It may be a keyboard issue. Just my 2.

    Speaking of time, the site's clock keeps slipping into the past. It's now just about six minutes slow. FWIW.

    Hey Mike I just checked. Seems to be correct central time zone.

    OK, we'll see if your time zone is set the same on the server. It's just a hunch.

    Server time was off, that's fixed now. Probably nothing to do with this, but may as well sweep up when we find dirt

    I'm pretty much convinced it's not time or date related, Hank was set to the right time zone. Back to the drawing board.

    Perhaps Gerbils have moved out of the servers .

    You'd think if it were the Cafe servers more people would have the problem.

    I use a Mac OSX with an Opera browser and no troubles in this area. I'm thinking something to do with Firefox, maybe.

    I use an old version of Internet Explorer at work and Firefox 3.5.2 at home no problemo. Is your internet security software (e.g., Norton or Symantec) set for closing sessions after a certain time interval?

    So, if I get a Mac, I can go back to 1969? Cool!
