I have written before about how the timeout is awkward and unfriendly. Today it chewed up a whole lot of detailed work took me a lot of careful thought to write. Totally lost. I was answering a (forum) post from a developer on my own board. I wrote out a careful decription of all the details we'd been discussing today to keep our records clear. Clicked to send - timeout. I exited the timeout message and CTRL+A and CTRL+C on my post. Wearily (Because I do get sick of this) clicked to log out/ clicked to log in/ logged in. Went to that thread again, oh joy, and tried to Paste. Gobbledegook - no not rubbish. Just it had copied everyuthing on the page EXCEPT my new text. So I lost all my careful work which had not just been written out, but rearranged several times over to get it clear. WHY can't timeout flash uip a warning a minute or two in advance so I have time to Save or Copy what I'm doing? WHY can't timeout OFFER a link to transfer me straight to the login page with a courtesy explanation that I need to login again? This is the only bit that I actually HATE about XF.
