ex machina

oops. it would appear that some people at m$ [actually msn] aren't happy about ie's new "cookie-catcher" feature [and hey - it shouldn't be hard to figure out who sent the anonymous letter. it's that person at m$ who's concerned about usability]:
"MSN and all the other Web properties in Microsoft are incredibly irate at the IE team for the cookie catcher feature. They claim they talked to MSN about the feature. Well, they did, *after* they had already implemented and coded it and Brad Chase and his team gave them an earful.

"What doesn't come out in the Wired article is how obtrusively the third-party cookie notification feature is implemented. If you enable this feature (and right now it's enabled by default), every time you hit a page with a banner that sets a third-party cookie, a warning dialog pops up. Every page. That's not a behavior that anyone's going to tolerate. And the all the Web sites will not be able to respond, even if they're willing, quickly enough.

End result: users will turn off the feature."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
