I connect to the internet via Earthlink, which means I dial into their server with my Remote Access control panel, launch Netscape, and gleefully hemorrhage time on the SDMB until I pass out from exhaustion.
I installed OS 9 tonight, where once there was OS 8.1, and now Remote Access automatically logs me out if I’m idle for a certain unspecified amount of time. I didn’t have that problem before, and I find it irritating to have to dial in again if I spend too much time, for instance, reading a long thread. I’m sure there’s a simple way to set some preference somewhere that’ll make Remote Access only log out when I damn well tell it to, but I can’t find it.
Help me, fellow Dopers. You’re my only hope.
