It's a nice idea, but I personally disagree with Cookies because of just
how proprietary they are.  Most browsers out there don't support them
(something I don't blame them for *grin*).  JavaScript is also pretty
hideous, if only because it is badly designed, badly implemented, and in
general, horribly written.  Also, when I do update the page, I announce
specifically which new snippets I've put on the page, so finding them
isn't that hard (in fact, you can prolly go through the CircleMUD List
archives to get a ChangeLog for the page if you felt like it).

Erm... Yeah.  Whatever.
