how to control the news marker with a cookie?

There is a cookie that controls login to a group.  When you logout or login to another group, you loose all information that is stored in that cookie.  This is bad news for such a thing as the news marker which seems to want to trancend the group logins.

If we start another cookie, that would "never" be cleared, we could remember the news marker on the browser and computer most used by one person.   This will give us a very simple and reliable method of supporting the "my page" feature.  

We may need an additional button on "my page" which will clear this cookie or may need to escalate the ability to move the news pointer back otherwise you could not use the feature very well in a internet cafe.

Advantages:
Disadvantages:
