If I log in and browse the site for awhile, then decide to respond to something, I go to the quick reply box, type up my comment, click on "submit reply" and get a message that I am not logged in and a box appears for me to log in again. Setting a "time out" cookie is a characteristic of some forum software which can be useful when people are using public computers in order that the log-in expires after a certain amount of time. So I was just wondering what the time out setting was.
