  • Question

  • It would be *nice* to start up SV on my work computer, issue an invite email to myself, drive home, login to my email, click the link in the invitation email, and have access to my work computer.


    But I can't, for two reasons:


    1. The inactivity timeout is too short; it takes me about an hour to get home and by that time the SV session on the work computer has closed.


    2. Even if I made it home in time, the SV session on the work computer requires that someone accept my request to join by clicking OK.


    A couple of suggestions:

    - user defined timeout

    - in the session startup, define a list of '@live.com' addresses that can join without needing to be ok'ed; if they're not in the auto-join list for the session, require the ok.  Or perhaps _only_ those in the auto-join list can join; all others are rejected.
