Are you using Safari on the iPhone or some other mobile device? My iPhone does that after connecting. It doesn't maintain a connection with a page, but initiates a new connection for each page, so it looks like you connect then disco. This causes your Unread flags to be reset.

If this is on a PC, are you using a non-satellite broadband connection? I know for a fact that cable or ADSL do not disconnect until you close the page. If you are using cable/ADSL, perhaps there is a setting in Safari to maintain the connection?

Why the hell are you using Safari on a PC??? Google Chrome FTW.

Not much of a computer gamer these days. My games all seem to be console based now... I have been contemplating getting some of the Halflife stuff for the mac, now that it is out, but my main computer is a laptop, and I have kind of gotten over mice, so I don't actually have on right now...
I have been considering getting an iPad, so that I can go more minimal on my computer than my laptop, but I haven't gotten there yet. It will depend on how useful the apps are in the long run...

Would it be that difficult to set up our board so that URLs were automatically shortened when posted? I've seen it on a lot of other boards where, instead of the full link being shown, just the first 15 or 20 characters are and then it ends in "..." if it is longer.

When did the BEB gain 12k+ members in a crazy influx of spam induction?

Shows how observant I've been...

The same swell in spambots is happening at another messageboard I frequent. I suspect that somewhere, somebody is making one last flailing attempt at making free money fall from the internets.

That is so last decade. This is the decade of causing industrial havok with targeted viruses to prevent third world countries from developing atomic power. Oh, and 3D printing the lower receiver for your proscribed assault weapon.

I got a spam PM a few days ago. At least one spammer has figured out how to get past the "one post to access all other sections" security.
