Heh, thanks :-)

I implemented the cookie requirement because the program tracks individual browsers to enable submitted tiles to be viewed per poster, and to assign special tile colours to people, and to count the number of different visitors it gets each day.

If you know of a way to do that without cookies or logging in, you're welcome. The target audience largely has cookies and JavaScript enabled anyway, so I figured I could get away with it. People without cookies would get a Set-cookie header with a different UNIQUE_ID every time they accessed the site (used to be only when they posted), but now, I want to be able to count the number of different browsers that access the site each day, which is a good approximation of the size of the audience, IMHO.
