Quick question about cookie authentication and posting:

Does it matter if I just delete the cookie on the computer instead of calling the sessionexpire mode? Or am I supposed to 'log out' to delete the reference to it on the server? And with setting 'expiration' to short or long - just how long is short or long?

Yeah, hijacking is what I was thinking of.

I make an LJ client for Firefox - the idea was that you could log in via the client and it could copy the cookie (it seems identical for the site) received to .livejournal.com, so you could be automatically logged into the site while the client is logged in.
