    Hey, guys.
    I just had to ask if anyone else is having these strange issues, which I think the Mac is responsible for...

    Every site I log into, I get logged out within about 30 seconds, including this one. It happens in all browsers, and has only been happening this week.
    I haven't installed any new software or updates in ages, haven't been to any sites I don't usually visit (I don't use the net that much at all), and haven't plugged in any devices that aren't mine.

    I also noticed that my firefox user agent switcher is having no effect, so I had a look at the about:config page and located the user agent string.
    When I change the agent with the agent switcher, it does indeed change, yet still reports that I'm using Windows NT.

    So I tried it from Safari, which it reports as Chrome, and Opera, which it thinks is Safari.
    I verified by looking at the logs for my own site. Same results.

    Any idea what on earth is going on here?

    Does it do this in other user accounts? Is your clock right?
    Does this happen in a fresh install of OS X on another partition?

    Just have to start narrowing it down.
