About the required EU cookie consent notices

Most EU cookie ‘consent’ notices are meaningless or manipulative, study finds!

Quote from a great article I found on TechCrunch

I call the “EU cookie consent notices” the “EU cookie consent nonsense“! Don’t get me wrong, I have a privacy policy; I have a cookie notice… and I reduced the Cookie usage before the new legal requirements (EU Cookie law and/or GDPR) came!

My blog has a few hundred visitors per day, if I use a blocking cookie notice (that you have to agree before the content is displayed) it dropped about 20 percent. So I changed it to a permanent displayed one on the left button.

Microsoft rolls back decision to take away internal usage rights from partners

When i saw the announcement of the changes to the Internal Use Rights (IUR) from Microsoft, I was shocked and pissed. Like many other partners, I told Microsoft, that this was a terrible idea, and that small partner must use the technology they need to support on a daily base. Now Microsoft has changed their mind, and they realised that the initial idea was bad! They announced that they would reverse the formerly announced changes.

We listened to you, and we have acted.

I also listened to you, and I also acted! You inspired me…

However, at least for me, the mind change comes too late!

HTTPie, a powerful an extendable command line HTTP client.

A while ago, I found an interesting project on GitHub: HTTPie, a powerful an extendable command line HTTP client.

HTTPie (pronounced aitch-tee-tee-pie) is a command line HTTP client. Its goal is to make CLI interaction with web services as human-friendly as possible. It provides a simple http command that allows for sending arbitrary HTTP requests using a simple and natural syntax, and displays colorized output. HTTPie can be used for testing, debugging, and generally interacting with HTTP servers.
