[Bug] One-Time Code anything but one-time
After putting in the one-time code for the 5th time since playing with the Gateway, I decided to see if I could figure out why this keeps popping up.

Turns out that the browser_id cookie that is used to identify my computer isn't being renewed on login. The cookie expiration is consistently 30 days from the initial login that I had to use the one-time code with.

So on July 3, I will be forced to enter the one-time code for the 6th time.

If the cookie was "renewed" at each normal login, this would make the validation last indefinitely so long as you login within 30 days of your last login.

At least, that's what my experimentation has told me.
