4 days of I would say under average internet usage. I have seen worse, but for 4 days?

Just one visit to Amazon frontpage ships you two doubleclick cookies, Wall Street Journal ships you ten, no less (tellapart, scorecardsearch) and so on…
…and only 10+ minutes of surfing and you have way more than 100MB of other trash on your computer unless you configure it to use RAM storage

The internet sites sure tries whatever they can to make your storage break :stuck_out_tongue:

Yet another reason why it’s worthwhile using a sandboxed browser session.

No cookies at all using that method unless of course you choose to save the ones you want. :wink:

Just received this from a friend and thought I would pass it on.

The Magic Bank Account

The author is not known. It was found in the billfold of coach Paul Bear Bryant, Alabama, after he died in 1982.

The Magic Bank Account

*** Imagine that you had won the following PRIZE in a contest: Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use. However, this prize has rules:

*** The set of rules:

*** 1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.

*** 2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.

*** 3. You may only spend it.

*** 4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.

*** 5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, “Game Over!". It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

*** What would you personally do?

*** You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

*** You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

*** Actually, this game is real …

*** Shocked ??? Yes!

*** Each of us is already a winner of this PRIZE. We just can’t seem to see it.

*** The PRIZE is TIME

*** 1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.

*** 2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not credited to us.

*** 3. What we haven’t used up that day is forever lost.

*** 4. Yesterday is forever gone.

*** 5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time without warning…

*** So, what will you do with your 86,400 seconds?

*** Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

*** So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life!

*** Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start “spending”…

*** “DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT GROWING OLD…!”

*** SOME PEOPLE DON’T GET THE PRIVILEGE!

Beautiful story Beef.
Every day when we wake up, most of us have a choice of starting the day with a positive or negative attitude. Even if not for anyone else, only for your own good, choose the positive attitude, everything is easier that way.
Now for the not so lucky ones who for various reasons do not have that choice, they have another choice, not to burden everyone around them with their trouble. It is the best way to achieve not being lonely as well.

Some of the most disabled people I have met in my life have also been the most positive - I owe it to them for teaching me the above and by all means, there are tons of small things to help me keep my positive attitude if I let it :flower:

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

Yet here i am, spending countless hours to earn some measly dollars to make sure my loved ones can survive a little.

Would i not spend those hours, i wouldn’t even had those measly dollars and my loved ones would have an even tougher time to survive.

So yeah, i “spend” that time for my loved ones. Would be nice i could spend it with them. Therefore i complain. A lot.
