For some weird reason, about 2/3 of the time i come here the forums tell me there is nothing new but when i go into a thread it says that somebody posted in a topic "Today at __:__" with numbers in the _. What is wrong? I use the exact same computer every day and never another computer.

Vanhal edited it so that it says
"Today at __:__" with numbers in the _
when it is today
and
"Yesterday at __:__" with numbers in the _
when it was the day before

Everybody knows that, and that's NOT what he was asking.

I reread it and here is a different answer

the forums stop showing the orange "new" picture when something is new after a while (this is probably because it automatically marks the topic or forum as read after a while

its to do with the cookie (and because i know someone is going to make some comment on it been eaten (*cough*luke*cough*) its a file that store info on your computer) if you go to the board it marks down the time you came then if you idle for 3minutes (i think) it thinks that you have gone and come back so the cookie tells the fourm to mark everything after (insert last visit) to be new and everything before old.

there are good and bad forms of cookies, I usually have to put up with lots of bad cookies and I hate that when those windows pop up
