If so, my 2c worth:

- I'm looking from work, using IE6 with cookies and everything else turned on,
  and the message is:

  "We have tested your browser and found the setting for cookies has been 
  turned off."

  Clearly the interrogation is faulty.

- any site that requires cookies to be enabled in order for the site to be 
  functional is broken. Cookies may provide some convenience; they should 
  never be a functional prerequisite.

For an organisation like NICTA to be running such a site is sad indeed.
