Just curious: if I don't log myself out, will I be automatically logged out after a certain time period?

So far it doesn't appear so. I keep forgetting to log out and when I return I am still logged in.

Me too. In fact I ahven't logged out since the upgrade - so there is either no time out or it is using cookies.
I like the fact that I no longer have to validate myself to get into MO.

The system doesn't maintain your login on it. It's maintained on a persisted Cookie on your machine. If you log out, it sets that cookie to "Logged out" You can also "log out" by deleteing the cookie from your PC.

Yes, Ashik. That is very important now.
Always remember to logout when using public computers. Closing all the Browser windows doesnot log you out, atleast on my machine. It is your responsibility to logout correctly.
Pauline, Thanks for bring this up. Nice work.
