A browser won't let you have a cookie unless you're inside the cookie's
listed domain and path.

Turn your browser's cookie settings to "prompt" and when the other page
asks you to accept its cookie, click "more info" and check the settings
against the domain and path of Interchange.  If interchange's domain and
path don't at least have the same parts that the cookie's do, then there
are only two ways to get the cookie....either tell the other site to set
cookies that you can read, or hack the browser.  :P

Yeah, it's annoying.  But there are good reasons.  What if i could read
the session cookie for the online banking service you were just on?
