in reply to delete cookies when browser window closed

What about setting cookie with expiration in the past on unload event?

    No Javascript, no event handler, no deleted cookie. Plus unload event handlers are not very reliable. Leaving out the expiration date just works (even with killall -9 $browsername), no need for Javascript.


    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

      I agree, afoken, but the onunload stuff I thought should be pretty good... it's included in most core libs (basically because of IE6's memory leak... you had to manually unload everything or as the user went from page to page, IE6 would get full and puke). Hm, though that's usually all IE-only code...

[marto]: the ticketing system does not accept calls via email, nor has it a working API. It's tied into Active Directory for authentication and the Solaris boxes aren't on that domain
[Corion]: The one thing I haven't figured out a solution to is how to get an edge-trigger instead of sending an email every 5 minutes if the usage is above 90%. I want one mail when it goes over 90% but no more emails as long as it stays between 90% and 95%.
[Corion]: marto: Clever! ;)
[Corion]: You can only reach me by pager
[Corion]: Maybe the solution would be to launch a cron job every minute that takes two measurements a minute apart and sends a mail if the usage is below on the first and above threshold on the last measurement
[marto]: that's essentially it :)
[marto]: I think the long term solution would be to have sysadmins that do their job, so I don't have to do everything :P
[marto]: they already have an entire BMC patrol system, which they disabled, because it was sending out spurious messages. So rather than fix the issue, or even find out what it was, they turned it off. No messages, can't be any problems, right?
[Corion]: marto: But having open tickets / incidents increases the pressure on them ;) Of course, likely your contract / SLA specifies an upper limit for the number of incidents :-D
[Corion]: marto: Ow ...
