I believe you are splitting your power as far as google is concerned.

Try using two different urls for your domain. For example when I use http://www.example.com my PR usually is a 3. When I put http://example.com in the address box, my PR is 4. Try this with your domain...also, some people use domain/index.htm too! I think I have been dividing my PR because some incoming links are one url and some are the other.

It's definitely better to focus your links on one domain version and also insure that your internal linkage is consistent with that policy. It's also suggested that the domain version not being used be set up with a 301 redirect to the preferred domain.
Getting everyone to link the same way can be tricky, and the above approach should keep everyone happy and avoid "wasted" links.

How do I do this? I though search engines do not like redirects...would this be bad in any way?

actually, once everyone got adjusted to the 301's, my PR turned out to be a tad better after redirecting domain.tld to www.domain.tld
I know that wasn't the only difference, but I think it did contribute to the improvement

Google treats http://www.example.com and http://example.com as 2 completely different URL's as far as PR is concerned

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, seo_guy!

Are meta refreshes like this?
<meta http-equiv="REVISIT" content="every 15 DAYS">

No, the revisit tag is supposed to tell bots how frequently to return to that page. I've never heard of a search engine robot paying the least attention to this tag. Don't waste even the minimal bandwidth.
The Meta Refresh tag can actually reload a different page immediately or after some number of seconds. This was an SEO trick from five years ago, but was easily spotted by bots.
