I’ve also started putting a cookie on your computer, if you haven’t disabled cookies. It won’t affect the working of the site for you whether you’ve disabled them or not. All I’m doing is storing a user number for you. I’ve no idea who each user number belongs to, but it enables me to keep a log that lets me see how people use the site, so I know which pages are popular, and what route people take to get to each page, which hopefully will help me develop the site better. For people with cookies disabled, I track IP addresses instead, but they give me less clear information. (29th June 2017)
