No. I think you mean the option "log me in automatically each visit". When you turn off your PC you will be logged out after a short time. So do I understand it anyway. Someone who knows it better may correct me.

Dear friends

I'm posting this early but will stay online till the time comes.

Thank you DhammaWheelers for your friendship and support for the past year. Thank you for putting up with my often long-winded rants. Thank you most of all to the mods and admins for maintaining such a conducive environment for kalyana mittata.

May DW continue to grow and help guide seekers and wayfarers on the cyberpath of the Dhamma.

What will 2010 bring if not more happiness, sorrow, success, failure, jubilation, disappointment, and all the rest of it? But what possibility is there for celebration--for marking the outgoing of the old, for welcoming the incoming of the new, for embracing the impermanence of life--if not for these impossible things?

May we all be well.
With metta,
zavk

I'm here, but looks like we only made it to 80.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -- C. S. Lewis

Stay online guys, some members maybe late!
As Quinn said, there'll be a video shortly. My internet speeds been slowed to 64k so uploading is taking longer than anticipated.
I hope to have a link to it within the half-hour.

Time to break out the sparkling chamomile ice-tea!
Happy Birthday to Dhamma Wheel!!!

kind regards

Ben

Greetings,

I suspect 80 might be the most number of members we've had on at one time, regardless.... I suspect the 99 record involved a whole lot of computer-generated bots etc.

:ugeek: :spy: :geek:

It was nice seeing you all here.

Metta,

Happy New Year Everyone! :twothumbsup:
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things
