Well if you've tested it then it may not be the case. But in the experience I was talking about all of the users were also in my hometown and you would assume in the same time zone.... but being in the Central Time Zone, LOTS of people never change the Windows default from the Pacific Time Zone which made it 2 hours off for us.

    so, Frank Wiles was right!!! it was a time issue (which i totally don't understand).

    now, i'm no longer desperate, but i am perplexed!!

    all i had to do, in the end, was change to a +2h expiration time, instead of +1h, BUT the wierd thing is that when i open the cookie that is set in IE, the expiration time is actually one hour from the time i set it - why is IE chopping off an hour???

    thanks to all for the helpful suggestions, and if anyone has an idea about why this odd behavior - i'd love to know the answer! no rush though!!
