Google Analytics: blocking my dynamic IP?

Actually, this is for a customer that uses IE...

I apologize if this has been discussed a lot - but I ran searched and looked through the FAQ without seeing any references...

I've tried the IP address filtering. I can get a specific one to block, but not one that uses a $ wildcard in the last slot.

Plus, for this particular client, their office IP regularly jumps around (wildcarding the last digits isn't enough).

I came across a web site that had code to create a cookie on one's machine that was supposed to, when a custom filter was setup in Analytics with the word "exclude" in it, block traffic - but I tried it and it didn't work.

I saw a recommendation to block urchin through AdBlock, and that would work for me (I use Firefox), but not my client.

I REALLY like the idea of a cookie. I could set up a page on my various client sites that only they know about:
www.example.com/exclude.html

Client goes there and clicks a link on the page to set the cookie. Anytime they clear out their cookies - they go back to that page and easily recreate the cookie.

Problem is that I am not a programmer.

Questions:
- Is the cookie blocking a workable solution?
- Can anyone help me out with the code or point me in the right direction?

Thanks!
