Oh fer pete's sake. I post a couple of test comments to my Kinja blog and I get more comments for it (all quite amusing, thanks for that!) than for any serious comment I've ever posted on the O'deck!
What I was trying to do was force Kinja to ask me to log in. I can't find a login link anywhere in this new fangled website design. It's probably here somewhere, along with my car keys, I'm just having a senior moment.
But I did in fact force Kinja to ask me to login, so maybe that cookie will last on my Mac laptop.
