Shared File area
I'm one of the new members. I tried to get into the Shared File area
and got the message that my browser wouldn't accept their cookie. I've
never had that problem before. I check my Preferences setup and it is
configured to accept cookies. Any suggestions?

We switched to a cookie based system for two reasons. First, and most
