i will never forget that time when i discovered that if you have two bandcamp tabs, one of which is playing, and you start playing in the other, the first one will pause, and it was all being done with a very complicated message bus based on polling cookies at high frequencies

i'm sure it doesn't work like that anymore but, fuck

it was so janky and so cool

doesn't work if some pages are on a custom domain... but i'm fairly sure they could make it work with a hidden iframe

now i am reminded of how shit the document.cookie "api" is


thankfully there are no good reasons to use it these days
