Question... Anonymous No.10416
I own two different computers in my house, a laptop with a wireless internet connection, and a desktop with a wired internet connection. I am pretty sure they both have the same IP address, which is why I'm a little confused about something–on some other websites, such as 7chan, if I watch a thread on one computer it is automatically watched on the other one as well, whether it is off or on. This makes sense because (from what I understand) imageboards keep track of things based on your IP address, not which computer you're using (if they do have the same IP).
But with this site, it's like I have a completely separate version on each of my computers. I often have to search the catalog to find threads on one computer that I already have watched on the other, and even if I have the same threads watched on both of them I don't get update alerts at the same time either.
Like, for example, I'm currently following the Milky Way general on both of them, and for the last week or so I've mainly been using my laptop. When I finally got on my desktop a few minutes ago, it told me I had more than 70 new replies to that thread even though I had already seen them all over the past week on my laptop.
I am just wondering if there is a way to fix this so it's more convenient, like is there some kind of way to synch both of my computer's internet settings or something, or am I just screwed?
They're both PCs if it matters, and my ISP is RCN.
