Denied access, and other strange forum behavior

Until yesterday I had access to the Private Java Class forum. Now when I log in, I get a response that says "Thank you, we have confirmed your identity and are granting you access to the forum." It says I will be forwarded to the forum, but it just routes me back to the login screen again. Attempting to click on the "Click here if you don't want to wait" link gives the same result.
At the same time my class forum priveleges went away, the light bulb icons on the main Saloon page disappeared. Related?

Try deleting your cookies from JavaRanch and then restart your browser.

Be at the right place at the right time and pay lotsa money.
I'm teaching a class here in Denver. I set that forum up for the members of the class to be able to talk about what I'm putting them through.

Once again, someone named "Paul" comes to the rescue!
It took me a while to find where Netscape stores cookies. Eventually I located them in a .TXT file in the \Program Files\Netscape\Users\MyUserName\ folder, under the cleverly disguised name of COOKIES.TXT ! Go figure.
Anyway, even though the text file has a warning NOT to edit it, I deleted the JavaRanch line, restarted Navigator, and voila! I'm back in the Saloon. Thanks, Thomas.
 
I knew I would regret that burrito. But this tiny ad has never caused regrets:
