Hey Brandon,

I'm not getting any cookies set on any of your pages (i.e.
http://bstout.securesites.net isn't working for me either). The headers
being sent to my browser are setting the cookie path to /tmp which says if
I'm at http://mscis.org/tmp then the cookie will be valid. Make sure your
cookie path is set to a plain ol' slash (/).

Set-Cookie: PHPSESSID=8oduagb1i4s0lu4r2olkrnkc97; path=/tmp

Hope this solves it!
