Two KF people from one computer?



Suppose someone else in my family wished to become a KF member, and post under their own nickname and avatar, from the same desktop computer that I use. How would that work?

Would only one of us be able to be logged on at a time?

Would we have to use different browsers?

Do I need to have separate computers for each of us?

Perhaps I should mention, I have a couple of KF windows open on my Opera browser all the time, whether I am connected to the internet or not, and I just refresh them when I connect again. With this approach, I don't have to log in with my user ID and password. Would browser cookies be allowing me to do that?

As long as you log off and then they log on - or, as you hint at, use different browsers - no probs

Hmmmmm. . . .

Suppose Patienceofasaint and Scholar each had a separate browser window in Opera. Each of us has our own tabs in our respective windows.

Would that work like two browsers? Or, would we need completely separate browsers, like Opera and Firefox?
