    I think that happens when you just X out instead of clicking on log out. Not for certain but i think thats it.

    James what it is like Reel_Blues said if you X out and disconnect the phone then it will still show you online on your computer. The reason is when you log into the BOC (and most websites) it will place a "cookie" on your computer so it knows what youve read on this site and when you come back if there are new replies to those threads then it will show unread. When you log out it will remove the cookie (or should depending on the website), I believe the BOC removes the cookies when you log out. Its pretty much something so the site can track where youve been on the site so it will show you the new stuff first does that make sense?
