This is primarily to Old-Polack but others are welcome.
Previously I was trying to gain access to the forum with Windows 7 pro and Iron.
Gives the following message: "you were unable to login. Please check your cookie settings"
I can access the forum with Pclinuxos as you can see from this message.
It's ok, now that I know what I have to do.
Obviously, I run both systems.
This is just for info in case somebody else has my problem.
