Evercookie is a JavaScript library that creates cookies which are really difficult to get rid of.

It stores cookie data in several types of storage mechanisms that are available in the browser, amongst them: Flash/Silverlight local storage, RGB values of auto-generated force-cached PNGs using HTML5 Canvas tag to read pixels (cookies) back out, Web history, HTTP ETags, Web cache.

Wikipedia mentions some popular web sites which have used this. I hope this doesn't get too popular.

Just what I needed to get me motivated and focused again. Thanks!
Every one of us is getting older, which is a natural process. Time is constantly moving on, second by second. Nothing can stop it, but what we can do is use our time properly; that is in our hands. Whether we believe in a spiritual tradition or not, we need to use our time meaningfully. If over days, weeks, months and years, we have used our time in a meaningful way – when our last day comes, we'll be happy, we'll have no regrets.
