I often read Geekzone on my computer at home and also on my computer at work. However I notice that when I've been reading Geekzone at home for a few days and then read it at work I get lots of messages that I've already read. Eg I read Geekzone at home yesterday (6th Oct) and when finished I clicked on the "Reset read flags" link. At work today (7th Oct) when I clicked on the "First reply since reset" icon next to a thread title I get taken to messages that are older than 6th Oct (eg I get messages from 2nd Oct).

 

Is this because the forum is using cookies to track when I last read the forum and the cookies on my PCs are out of sync? I can't think of anything else that might cause this.

No, but sessions are different. This is something that's been going on for years. I could possibly update all sessions for a user when Reset Read is clicked. Will check now that I have some time.

Ah, so I have two different sessions running at the same time and each session has it's own "last read" value? Would it help if I logged out and back in each time I moved to a different computer?

In theory the "last read" should match because sessions are different but last read is per user. There's a bug somewhere that causes them to go out of sync though. However Last Access is per session so we can expire sessions that aren't supposed to stay logged in.
