It took me an hour to log in, allegedly Firefox was declining cookies from the site (and I've put The Forum on the list of exceptions*).
*and I don't block the third-party cookies to boot
I want to blame the latest version of Firefox (64.0.2) for this, but it worked well (cookies were accepted and all) before the forum upgrade.
Anyway, if you see I'm absent that's because I'm either dead or can't cope with Firefox, forum and cookies.
P.S. Or I'm sleeping through the winter like all the decent folks on this side of the iron curtain.
P.P.S. I see that bukbot
is alive and well and probably is doing some checking.
P.P.P.S. I'm getting seasick, thanks to all these circular windows Buks (and other avatars) are peeking through.
