Cookies December 5th, 2002 @ 8:37 pm PST
It just took me two hours of programming and slamming my head against the desk to realize that Cookies get saved according to the exact URL of the site. I kept trying to delete the cookies of domain.com when I needed to delete the cookies of www.domain.com. That is annoying.

Brinkster is a free web host that supports ASP. You get 30 MB of space and no ads on your site, plus ASP 3.0 support, MS Access databases, a web-based file manager, and control of the ADO & FileSystemObject. How cool is that?

Youshik has been a tremendous help with some of the trickier Perl bits and Ben is the man for being so cool about answering my eMails.
