Multiple sessions support

Every time I switch between my desktop and laptop, anidb says something like "your login and password are not correct, so you'll die in your sleep" and after that I need to log in again, which is kinda boring and not interesting at all. And if I change frequently (like every 20 minutes, that can happen too for various reasons) that becomes even annoying.

So, if there a way to make that "relogin" procedure transparent, or is there any (planned?) support for multiple sessions?

Oh, well..
Thank you!

I somehow managed to be that dumb to miss the last paragraph of this.

Looks like the "" text still needs to be changed to "" there.

Hi, may I suggest either making a more explicit link to the dedicated login page because I had no idea that's what the star was for. I actually did try passing my mouse over it before but I guess it wasn't precisely over it (maybe because i'm running 1920x1200 on a 15" screen with 8pt fonts :) )
.. or add another checkbox to "Keep old cookies" in the front page with a link explaining what it's for.

Well, it all depends on the DPI scaling! ;) That could be some really big text!

a 15" screen is definitely not made for such a resolution...

Uh, sure it can be, there have been monitors with 200+ dpi for at least half a decade (probably much longer). Electronic paper (E Ink) have a resolution of like 300 dpi.
And I think we'll see higher dps screens become more and more common for better readability, higher dpi looks better than ClearType imho. Heck, the quality difference between 96 dpi and 130 dpi is clearly noticeable.

1920x1200 on a 15" screen would be 150ish dpi I think?

The bad side of high dpi is most applications don't support it properly, vista can kinda brute force around it but the apps looks like crap since they're simply scaled.

this wasn't about technical possibility petriw. this was about sane usage. a 15" screen with such a high resolution. this is out to scrap your eyes in no time.

and now FIX MA AOM .WHATEVER >_<

No, what I'm trying to say is that with the proper settings you could use 3840x2400 on a 15" without fonts being small. ;) 1920x1200 on a 15" with a 8pt font does not in any way actually mean the font is small. ;)

(Although it seems it is in this case!)

Well.. for me, yes I like small fonts since I like to fit a lot of information on screen :) It actually may be better for your eyes if you sit, say about 2 ft away for a laptop screen, because that forces them to exercise => hawk eyes :D ..the same reason why eyeglasses tend to worsen your eyesight as far as I've heard.

No matter how good your eyesight small fonts dramatically reduce readability, as you've kinda stated yourself already in the thread. I also doubt it'd do your eyes any good since it'd cause extra strain which would be a problem that can be detrimental to your eyesight. (I don't know the terms for it in english but it's seriously not a good idea to use super small fonts thinking it'd improve your eyesight.)
