    While searching around for articles on InPrivate filtering for IE8, came
    across this:

    http://blog.tagman.com/?p=33

    So they're hoping that users will not normally move into InPrivate mode
    for their general web browsing or get so irritated with losing content
    at their favorite sites that they discontinue using InPrivate mode.

    Microsoft set the default count to 10 (i.e., for auto blocking in
    InPrivate filtering, start blocking after 10 sites that I visit have the
    same 3rd party content provider). Hmm, maybe I should lower this to 1
    or 2.

    For me, now I have to do some more searching on just how TagMan tries to
    recreate the cookies that are deleted. So now for more Googling.

    Oh, and since this article mentions the .sol cookies used by Shockwave
    (which includes Flash Player), guess it's time to head off to the Flash
    Player config page and zero out what web sites can leave on my host.
