cookies question
 
Here at my work comp, I regularly delete my old cookies, temp internet files, and I delete the cache just to keep things running smooth. They actually ask that we do this from time to time since our system is web based.

Some days I noticed that my cookies folder remains empty all day. Why does this happen? Where are these cookies going? Is big brother watching?

Re: cookies question
 
Did your ability to accept cookies get turned off for some reason?

If you WOULD like to know if Big Brother is watching, I have a simple program you can use that scans inbound queries to the computer and you could basically close the port to whoever it is.

My ability to accept cookies shouldn't change, unless it's doing it by itself. Some days my cookies register, some days they don't, it's strange.

Would this program you have get me in trouble? Wouldn't closing a port raise someone's attention?

I just got an email, next week they're going to be installing Pest Patrol on our systems, they say they can then invisibly track our browser activity.

I'm guessing this means they aren't watching now, but will be.

Great, no more Warpath for me during the day! LOL

Re: cookies question
 
If they're installing Pest Patrol, they are installing spyware removal, nothing more. This program I have MAY raise someone's attention that is planning on monitoring what you're doing HOWEVER, it is something that can easily be attributed to "Windows Firewall" protection.

Re: cookies question
 
Also, them installing ANY type of spyware protection on your computer is only going to further prevent them from monitoring you since some spyware acts strikingly similar to "big brother".

Cookies question! I've been waiting for a thread like this! I'm partial to Milano, but every now and then I harken back to the old school days of Chips a Hoy and a big glass of milk....

If they're watching you, they probably won't be doing so w/ software on your computer, so don't worry about that. If they're doing anything at all, its probably through a proxy server that maintains a list of blocked sites (they won't serve up the page to you).

Most companies don't have the manpower or the money to take on a serious Big Brother type role with their employees. They may bring in someone/ something to watch a specific employee, if that employee warrants it though.

No love for Oreos TAFKAS?

And yes, I agree with cpayne, you can check your IE settings and see if anything is routed through a proxy easily enough.

Uh oh here we go again.

It's hard to beat ol' fashioned chocolate chip cookies fresh outta the oven.

As for the other cookies question, thanks guys.

Ahhh.... all good choices, TAFKAS my friend. However, I recently "invented" a cookie that is a delightful blend of chocolate chip, oatmeal, and of course...

coconut.

We call them Coco-Joes. There are no words to accurately describe how delicious these cookies are, therefore I will invent my own word right now... "Scrumptralescent".

Re: cookies question
 
Ha, you said scrump. :)

Joe and his coconut...

Re: cookies question
 
Damn Joe that sounds like an awesome cookie, coconut makes everything better.

Someone here at work recently made a carrot cake with coconut in it and it was insanely good.
