it seems since, I don't know, this year, that I have to sign in twice because the first time gives me a message about having 'cookies' turned off (which I do).  That doesn't seem to keep the second sign-in from being successful.  Also, the site doesn't 'remember me' as I ask it to do.  Is something new?

If you cannot get the site to "remember you", even though you have checked the "remember me" box on the Member Login page:

  • You need to adjust your browser's frequency of clearing cookies.
  • Cookies are what allow your browser to "remember you"
  • If your browser is set to clear out cookies every day, the "remember me" function won't work.
  • You can do adjust the frequency of cookie-clearing:
    • in the Preferences:Privacy:Cookies menu for FireFox
    • in the Tools:Internet Options menu for Internet Explorer.

If you have cookies turned off then there is no way for the site to 'remember you', it HAS to drop a cookie on your machine for it to do that. Did you change that setting on your machine? That setting is what is prompting these messages.
