The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

Cookie clutter

In the old days – before the cookie legislation, cookies were used and ignorance was a kind of bliss.

I’m sick to death of cookie notices on web pages. They are bad enough, but made worse by the constant EXTRA stuff we have to handle nowadays.

A further new development that young people and newbees think is “normal” but which puts me off a website quicker than a lightning strike on the bedside table during an orgasm, are the adverts that pop up, polls, notifications, competitions, feedback pages, and, the worst thing, videos playing shit whilst you rush around the page trying to find it so you can switch it off.

There is a lot of debris and pollution on the Internet. In the early 90’s it was lurid colours and sparkling text, now it’s all sorts of extra visual torture made worse by those bloody cookie notifications. As if we never knew!

No wonder I get irritable with Mr Furlong. He’s no idea how exhausting surfing the Internet can be.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
