Upon login the server sets a session cookie (exeter-bd-server) which expires when the browser quits. This enables the "My saved jobs" link in the sidebar to take you directly to you home ("saved jobs") page. The cookie can be made permanent by clicking on the "Remember me" button on your home page.
