And you, my sinews, grow not instant old, But bear me stiffly up. Remember thee!I

Okay I've officially had it.

Username and Password remembering is an ENORMOUS pain in the tuckus. Any Microsoft domain never remembers me. Google is better but still forgets after awhile. Firefox always remembers but wont tell the page and makes you go thru the login process again.

All this Microsoft Passport shit and OpenID can all suck a big pile of gopher weenie. None of it works how humans function. Basing it on arbritary cookie time-limits for rechecks that are different across multiple domains is infuriating.

Think of how many pages you go to that require you to login in AND offer the "Remember my username and password" but then forget you after some time.

Oh sure, security you cry, yep security. You know what else is secure - boarding an airplane buck ass naked with a speculum up your netherbits, but we dont have shit like that going on. There's a limit.

I want one username and password, tied to Windows or a thumbdrive or a magic the gathering card being furiously rubbed on the monitor that remembers who I am and all my various incarnations across the internet and just fucking logs me in and keeps me logged in when I'm there and not when I'm not. How can this still be this hard?
