JD is great and I enjoy posts from Mark and John besides many others. However, occasionally I feel uncofortable discussing few issues with my real name. Would it be a good idea if this forum also allows ppl to post with any name (anonymously) just like MD? I think many of us would be more comfortable posting w/o revealing their identity. Just my thoughts....

Too much pain....
Log out first, then (after recalling your other ID/pass) log in and post and remember to log out...
Beseides, somehow it doesn't feel "right"!

I'm not exactly sure how 2 Phase Commit would help in this situation. :roll:

[MH]: Too much pain....

Well, you can create a local HTML file such as the one below (suitably edited). Bookmark it, and you're never more than a couple clicks away from your alternate ID:

From limited testing today, the only problem I see is that all forums on the main page show up as "new" - it seems we've lost some cookie info. There's probably a way to retain this; I was simplifying as much as possilbe. Not a big deal though. Oh, and though you may get two windows at the same time with different logins, you can only use one at a time. Once you open the second widow, if you try to click on something in the first window it uses the second window's ID. (There's only one login cookie at a time, no matter how many different windows you have.) So you can't jump around too much - any time you want to switch IDs, go through the form. Enjoy...

Use two different browsers. For example, login to IE as the real you and login to Netscape as the fake you (or Mozilla or Opera or ...)
