With each page visit (within the session time frame) the session timer is reset back to maximum by the server - and the count down starts again. You have no control over that with the exception of changing the timeout value or abandoning the session altogether. Any count down timing will have to be done client side. It's a page view by page view variable, not a length of time you can surf the web site before your session expires. --- Anthony Baratta President Keyboard Jockeys "Conformity is the refuge of the unimaginative."
