I've been working on your exercise (A method for sharing 'unique' doubleclick
IDs) but so far nothing too easy has come up. You'd have to blow a few holes
in the sandbox with a signed applet under java and code a method to modify
the cookies for each browser type (Netscape, IE, and hotjava all stored cookies
in different ways, I didn't even look at Mozilla yet.) I haven't given up on
it yet but it's more complex then I thought it would be...
