thanks for your feedback too, jeff

<tip type="cookies">

once you establish the habit of visiting sites on a regular basis which
require logging in, you will want to use cookies

don't forget to establish some housekeeping and/or preventative measures
for these cookies

first of all, don't use the same userid/password for every site you log in
to, because if something bad happens and somebody figures out one of your
userid/password combos, you do *not* want this person to have automatic
access to all your other accounts all over the web

this means you will end up with different passwords in different cookies,
so now all you need to do is either back up your cookie folder or write
down your passwords elsewhere

why? because sooner or later you will accidentally blow away your cookies,
and then you will either have to restore them from a backup, or log in all
over the web again using the correct different passwords on every site,
which by now you will have forgotten, since you usually don't log in each
time, relying instead on your cookies

how do i know this?  experience    ;o)
