I have a wee problem. As you can readily discern, because
you're reading this posting of mine, and you've read others,
I can login to this site and post here. I'm doing this from one
of my school's computers.

But, I can't login from my own computer. It's a new
one and as I was setting up, doing this and that [and
not being an expert in the intricacies of computers],
I was fidding around with my McAfee Security program.

It was trying to educate me in the whys and wherefores
of cookies and I was experimenting with them. I think,
no, this part I know, I refused a cookie from this
site when the cookie box appeared; this was the first
time I tried to access here from my new computer.

Is this a, "if you don't like our cookies, you can't
come to the party" scenario? Does refusing a cookie
once from one computer, forever ban that computer from
accessing a site where the cookies were refused?
This should help:

In McAfee:

Right-click the red "M" icon by your system clock.
Click "Privacy Service."
Click "Options."
The McAfee Privacy Service window appears. Click the "Cookies" tab.
Enter each website address from which you would like to allow cookies.
Click "Add."
Close the window.

In Internet Explorer 6:

Click the "Privacy Tab."
Click the "Advanced..." button in the Settings heading.
Check "Override automatic cookie handling."
Click "Accept" under First-part Cookies.
Click "Block" under Third-party Cookies.
Click "Always allow session cookies."
Click "OK."
Click "OK" on the Internet Properties window.
Close all open IE windows and then re-launch IE.
It has, Matthew. Thanks ever so much!
