There should be tab labeled "other". It will get you infinite colors.

Using IE - go to the Tools menu and select Internet Options.
Click on the Privacy tab, then select the Advanced button
In the Cookies box, check to "Override automatic cookie handling", then check to accept first party cookies - then have it "Prompt" for 3rd party cookies (I specify Prompt - because you can break other pages by blocking cookies - for example - if an msn.com cookie is blocked, it'll break your access to Hotmail (been there, done that!))
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
