How the heck do I login to the wikis?

I want to look at

However, when i try and hit "join" it prompts me to login.  Then I hit register on that screen and again it asks for a password.

I tried IE6 and Opera.  Both do the same.  I'm not running any firewall and am on XP SP1.

Tried it under Safari on MacOS 10.2 and got the same thing.

There's a bunch of problems with the login system.  I have found that I have to click login, and then edit the url to remove the members part of, then hit login again - and then I'm in.

The issue with virtual host/caching stuff (which I mentioned elsewhere) is part of the cause for this.  That and some redirect issues.  I've simply disabled the caching mechanisms for now, which should solve the problem.  Since it seems there's very little interest in the wiki as a whole, it doesn't appear that there will be much of a server load increase caused by a lack of caching, which is what my main concern was.

Eventually I may try to go back and fix this, which will cause people to be redirected to again, but without the problems.

As a side note, it'd be kind of nice if I got some offers from people to help me maintain some of the server side stuff instead of me having to use up all of my own free time (which is becoming more and more difficult to justify...).  It'd certainly cut down on the amount of issues like these sticking around until I have time I can waste fixing them.
