in response to "something is wrong"...

yeah, me especially, i woke up at 2:30 am this morning, us crazy americans...

anywayz, i think that the offline, online thing is totally bogus, if not, someone explain how it could possibly work, unless it searches for ips...but then everybody'd have to have a static ip, and that's not very likely.

Jeremy Woodruff as,

Oh ****, I didn't realize you were Shad. Alrighty, here is how it goes, if you post on the boards using your membership name and password, you are considered online, if you post as a guest, you are an online guest. I think it calls you online for 30 minutes after your last post.

And so the problem remained; lots of people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches. Many were increasingly of the opinion that they had all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that the trees had been a bad move and that no one should ever have left the oceans. - Douglass Adams

No, it considers you 'online' if you view one of Ambrosia's many boards while you have cookies on. I've read posts that I have posted on a few days before hand and seen my online status as being 'on'; also, there is a page that lists ALL of the online people at that moment, and you will always be listed at the top as reading the "who's online?" page, since thats what it reads you as doing.
