Which cookies does HA create?
Sometimes but not each time Hydrogenaudio saves a cookie on my computer named "ipb-myass-div".

I stumble over my association with the cookie's name (my ass?). Are this defacto cookies generated by Hydrogenaudio?

Under normal circumstances I wouldn't ask something like this but I wonder whether I could have a security problem.

If it's any consolation, I have that cookie also.  A search on Yahoo suggests many others have it also.  I wouldn't worry.
I'm on a horse.

"ipb-myass-div" cookie contains the last position of the "My Assistant" window, which you can drag around to a convenient location.
Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.

Ah, and that is why the cookie only sometimes is created.

And I had feared it could possibly be a fishing attempt for my user name and password I am dealing with here...

Thank you for your explanation, Yirkha.
