Re: Mac OS X, Safari and Cookies - Can't seem to get rid of message
I know it's bad form to reply to your own message, but having tested this in Chrome and Firefox, I have identical results.
Does this mean that the black cookie bar at the bottom is always there, on first entry, no matter what cookies are set?
Mac OS X, Safari and Cookies - Can't seem to get rid of message
I'm unclear who to ask so thought I'd throw this open for anybody to help.
I'm running a Macbook Pro, OS X 10.8.4 with Safari 6.0.5.
Every time I go to www.theregister.co.uk, I get the banner along the bottom of the screen asking if I am happy with cookies. I always accept this, but I still always get this when I return to the front page. I only get this type of constant asking for cookies on www.theregister.co.uk.
I have checked in the Safari Preferences ->Privacy that I accept cookies, I have checked that three cookies are actually set in Safari, regmedia.co.uk, theregister.co.uk and theregister.com. I can delete these cookies, I go back to www.theregister.co.uk, I am presented with the black bar along the bottom of the screen, I accept, the cookies are stored in Safari, I do not delete them, I go back to www.theregister.co.uk and I'm still presented with the black bar. I do not get the black bar on a number of other pages, such as these forum pages.
I have worked my way through blocking all cookies to allowing anybody to set a cookie, all with the same results. I always without exception get the black cookie bar at the bottom. As already said, I do not get this on other sites.
I don't have any extensions loaded to manage cookies.
Any help or sensible suggestions welcomed.
Re: You don't think of laser beams with millimetre ranges,
This won't be used in a air open environment. There will be solid state devices perhaps a couple of mills in size which will have these lasers in. They will not be open to dust, or air or anything like.
I enjoyed it...
No idea why a poster thought it was dull, I thought it informative and entertaining.
A side of the business I know (and knew) nothing about, I'm not sure I know much more now, but the next time I'm off loading a whole heap of older stuff, I'll be a lot more demanding about how much to ask for.
The Vatican is actually very enlightened and their Observatory is actually well respected in astronomy circles. They do real research and don't put their head in the sands re Bible etc. Indeed George Memaitre was one of the first people to propose the universe is actually expanding before Hubble proved it was. He also hypothesised the Big Bang and crossed swords with Einstein. A very, very clever man indeed who managed to combine his Catholic faith and Astronomy with apparent ease.
Not everybody in the Catholic Church believes the Sun goes around the Earth, though apologising for burning you at the stake for believing this can take some considerable time.
Tried this and couldn't get the scammer up...
...and then realised I had AdBlock running.
Since every computer I own has this I have forgotten all about ads. Wonderful add-on to your browser, mandatory in my view.
The 68000 range of CPU's
The CPU's weren't RISC but CISC.
They were very nice to program down to assembly level. I recall writing a boot loader for one in the early 90's . It had a nice regular instruction set and "just worked".
Pot meet kettle, kettle meet pot...
Gosh who would have thought it, Microsoft complaining about lack of openness.
It must be in a different universe where Microsoft had deliberately obscured or not release some of the following information.
NTFS file system
SMB File system
Office .doc format
Hidden Windows API's
Why Paris, well there's nothing secret about her!
Not in the UK
I've in the UK and have not received any memo from IBM advising me to use anything else but Office.
As an exercise I just uploaded a 201 page contract I'm working on into Open Office and had a look at it. Mmm....looks nothing like the Word document I'm working on. The equivalent Track Changes in Open Office doesn't seem to work as well (not that Track Changes in Office is anything to write home about), table layout is a mess as well as how landscape/portrait handling is displayed. I've no doubt that Open Office would be able to do what we wanted if we had started using it from the outset, but it's not up to importing complex word docs and thats the problem. Whilst most of the world + dog have docs stored in whatever proprietry Office doc they use, they still need Office or some version of it.
One day we might be able to dump that bloated hog that is office, but not yet.
Paris as she's as much idea about formatting Office as OpenOffice has
