    Re: Cookies

    I only have:
    leif@www.wopr[1].txt
    so would guess you can clear the others.

    (It shouldn't matter if you delete the current one - you should just be offered another.)

    Re: Cookies

    I believe that these
    howardkaikow@w3t[2].txt
    howardkaikow@w3t[1].txt
    howardkaikow@wwwthreads[1].txt

    are from another site that uses "wwwthreads" fourm software. I have several because I visit several sites.

    All of them include www.wopr.com within the cookie.

    Re: Cookies

    In that case, delete them all and let it hand you a new one.

    Re: Cookies

    The last time the cookies got deleted, I was not recognized as a registered user.

    A list of the cookies written by the lounge could be posted so that we could know their names.

    Re: Cookies

    This is all covered in the FAQ:

    Do I have to accept cookies?

    Yes, you will not be able to login as a Registered User unless cookies are enabled. Cookies are used to track your Username/Password/Language/Stylesheet and which posts you have read for your current session. Without accepting cookies some functions won't be available to you and you'll miss a lot of the convenience and most of the fun. You needn't worry because your Password is stored encrypted and for your further protection its cookie is killed when you logout. If you don't want to have to re-enter it every time you visit (and you're on a safe machine), then don't logout.
    If your cookie goes bad and you want to delete it because you can't login any more, you can find it for Netscape at Program FilesNetscapeUsersyournamecookies.txt. Delete the four lines containing "www.wopr.com", "/cgi-bin/w3t" and your name, password, stylesheet or language. For IE, in WindowsCookies, delete "your name@www.wopr[1].txt"

    Re: Cookies

    I have not been discussing accepting cookies.
    I appear to have extraneous cookies on my system associated with www.wopr.com.

    All I need to know is what are the names of the correct cookies, then I can delete the rest.

    Re: Cookies

    On my work machine I have two locations for cookies, I don't know why. One is c:windowstemporary internet filescontent.ie5; when viewed with File Explorer, attributes showing "Last Modified" and "Last Accessed" are available. At your own risk, perhaps you can retain only the most recent.

    In the other location, my shared LAN directory, the ...cookies folder has standard File Explorer attributes; so you could retain only the newest if that is how your Cookies folder reads.
