*on the phone to our site expert chap this evening*
Me... "Oi Morty my good mate and all round interweb alien chaser, site maintenance person and boffin at a large generic on-line auction place, how the devil are you?"
"I would like our happy corner of the net to comply with the tiresome rules handed down from on high by "the man" in order that none of our members feel dubious about cookies and want to make known a tracking preference... I'd like a giant annoying pop-up of a notice to appear whenever peeps log in or look at one of SirQ's threads. What d'you reckon about that then?"
"We don't use those sorts of things"
"So... I'd just like a page explaining that when they sign in then"
"F*** off you daft bint" (he's from Cambridgeshire, they talk funny over there).
"OK, all sorted then... I'll see you next week for the Jubilee bash"
Oh well, the interweb poooolice can bog right off then.
Now, had a bit of a nap earlier and will be doing same in a mo... up to get to the seaside to see the sun and before all the bods turn up making a noise, if I can drag the Baron from immense kipdom that is or it'll be just me & the dog.
Then it's back to cause some hassle in other parts of Crapshire. Busy busy...
