Posting to Boardsie via a proxy server issue

    Last week or so they put in a proxy server for all us poor slaves to connect to the internet through.
    But since then, I've been unable to post to the board without being prompted for my username and password again and again, and again. In the end I give, as it appears to timeout after 30 seconds some times shorter. And it's impossible to send PM to anybody too!

    I reckon that my difficulties lie with the proxy server that the f#####s at work installed just to spoil our fun ;-) But, I have since registered a different user with Boardsie and I'm able to post to the board without any problems. Weird ya?

    I've been told by the posers that be here on the board that i haven't been banned or anything, so what could it be? The proxy? Me? Who knows?

    ps: I'm posting this from home (no proxy)

    Same browser? Could the proxy in work be stripping out cookies? How are your settings different on your two accounts? As in, do you have 'browse with cookies' on with one account and not another, etc.
