So, anyone have any ideas/spec regarding these cookies? What is the variable "y1dt8hx" and why is it being set to a new, apparently random value every time you visit an [WWW]ilovebees.com web page? --UserExtrasonic 16:08, 3 Aug 2004 (PDT)

ilovebees cookie:    ayz1pnJ5kkjml.55cmfzbzJ5
wiki session cookie: 7b19d5dcc3f7e86e20b5745c9c7de694
Looks like its not a session key. Could be a serialized data structure though.--UserCompnski
That isn't necessarily not a session key. The wiki session cookie is hexadecimal, while the ilovebees cookie appears to be in base64. The encoding is different but the data could be of entirely the same nature. --Kaelan
