Todd, is there a cookie or something of the sorts from your site which makes my browser automatically refresh your page?  This is the only website that does it.

    Yes, some pages automatically refresh after 54 minutes of inactivity, but no, it's not a cookie that does it.  I have created a browser script (JavaScript) which refreshes certain pages, so that the content will stay current if you sit on the page.

    Pages that contain an input space (where you can type something) should never refresh automatically, because that would erase anything if you take longer than 5 minutes to type it.  (Let me know if you find a page that violates this rule.)

      The refresh time is about 5-10 minutes for me.  Haven't seen it on imput pages.  What happens is if I'm viewing say drawing results and it's refresh time, the page is in a different position after refreshing.  I would have to scroll back to where I was originally.  Same thing happened on the old page also.

        Yeah, its no where near 54 minutes to refresh. I think maybe Todd made a typo in his post. It's more like 5 minutes.

          yup, it was a typo - 5 minutes exactly.
