Kiosks revisted

2000-11-26 17:48:27+00 by ebradway 1 comments

Well, it seems that this kiosk doesn't have it's security as tight as the last. Everytime this one 'timesout' on me I can click the back button and get right back at it. This is one of those Global/Digital Media Com kiosks with a big plasma screen above it streaming commercials at me. The web kiosk is below with no chair and a keyboard mounted just a little bit too low, even if I had a chair. I can get slightly comfy on one knee but I guess to anyone getting wrapped up in the commercials on the plasma screen above me, it looks like I'm saying my last rites online before my flight.. This does pose a new problem for Dan to work out: my cookie is still in this browser, so any schmoe who walks up can post to Flutterby directly unless I logout.

That's why I've at least got the "logout" link. I've thought about making a refreshed shorter time-period cookie, but refreshing it constantly and dealing with timeouts seems to make that a less friendly idea than requiring a logout or browser restart.
