Default Problem staying logged in

Maybe this is just my problem, or maybe I missed an announcement but....

I've tried IE 8 and Firefox and have this problem with both browsers.

When I login on the main page, it takes me to the "thanks for logging in screen" and then redirects me back to the main page. This is all normal, but I'm not logged in. If I click on one of the forums, it takes me there and shows that I'm logged in and I stay logged in until I leave the forum. However, sometimes this doesn't happen. Sometimes I can't login. I'll clear my browsing history (which happens every time I close my browser), I'll reload the page and sometimes it will let me in and sometimes it won't. I've even used a different computer at a different location with the same results.

Anyone have any ideas?

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

Look at the url at the top of your browser. Right now it's http://www. Try the url with and with out www and use the one that works.
It's annoying. Trust me.
