are you sure you didn't used this other computer to visit the forusm before? Maybe you logged in and forgot to uncheck the remember me box, so when coming back you were still logged in. Or maybe the network has shared cookies but I don't think it is possible. Just make sure you have a strong password with scrambled letters and numbers so it's hard to guess by people. I remember one staff had his nickname as password and I almost had to lock his account until he changes it in case someone would have logged in and deleted all posts

i have never logged in using that particular computer.  My password is pretty hard to decipher. I puzzled about all this.  Maybe I forgot to turn off my computer back at home.  I'll check soon

it could be that too, but i find it weird tho, it must be that the comp you used (i assume school/work?) share cookies with the entire network. If it isn't possible you should change your password in case

Ok.  I changed my password.  However, the weird thing is that my account was not changed at all.  No new posts, nothing was changed.  Maybe its what you said, DJ.  I certantly hope so.   :)smile.gif

Global cookies(network wide) are possible in a sense, but usually considered insecure and avoided. I can not see InvisionFree using them. As Super Speler said, it was most likely you're mom or someone going through your history. Just don't go to pr0n. :Dbiggrin.gif
