= notes
== the back button is for navigation
quick heads up: the browser's back button is not an undo button.
most toys here will lose progress/state if the page is reloaded.
some pages (like the correspondance games) can use your browser's
  @|mdn_ls localStorage@ to survive a page reload.
this does not work in private/incognito browser windows
  and must be enabled by using page options.
@|mdn_ls https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Window/localStorage@

== enable javascript
almost all pages on this site require javascript.
most things should work in most browsers,
  but some things require a touchscreen,
  and nothing is expected to work in IE.
