Drupal Sessions Login Issue

A couple hours ago the sessions table for Drupal needed repaired or emptied because it was not allowing SEO Book users to login. I just emptied it, so you need to login again to comment, but it should work well again. Sorry about that.

Every site drops its logins now and again - it happens, don't worry about it :)

Drupal sessions expire when the cookie_lifetime that is set in the settings.php of Drupal is over, but that not a cause for having to repair the sessions table. Probably a database writing operation was taking place when the database server said goodbye leaving the sessions table in a corrupted state.

yup, looks like it's working again, cool.
I know that with coppermine, I have to clear my cookies everyonce in awhile to log in to my admin panel. That sucked until I figured it out. Hope it doesn't make to much impact on the visitors. I wonder if there has ever been a study done about the reachability of a site and if it affects user returns.
