The site seems to WFM, but it is horribly broken if cookies are disabled.

The site requires flash.

> The site requires flash.

Well, sort of. It will use flash if it detects that the browser supports it. Otherwise it tries to fall back to a plain HTML version. However, the code to do this relies on the setting of cookies in the browser, e.g.:

if (canPlayFlash()) {
    if (getCookieValue("html") != "true") {
	document.location = "...";
    } else {
	CheckHTMLSwitch();
    }
} else {
    SetCookieValue("html","true",1);
    CheckHTMLSwitch();
}
