OK, let's pull this discussion down a level: testing it out.
So I tried to login to the crossword.thetimes.co.uk -- I used an email
address persona had never seen, it asked me for a password, and sent me
a confirmation message, containing a link that I clicked on.
However, as I was reading clues and filling in blanks, I got a popup
that said "login failure [object Object]". And crossword told me it was
saving locally, and to login to save to the server. And the Log in
button stayed displayed, rather than a Log out button, which I assume it
might get replaced with if I ever get successfully logged in.
Firefox 23.0.1, Windows 7 64-bit with autoupdates. Need any other info?
Write me privately if you want the email address I used (not the one I
use here), or the password. I used new ones, so I can share for testing,
and then discard them and use different ones "for real". If the system
actually works. Hey, the video demos looked great...
