in thread Your random numbers are not that random

While I can do this for my current project, it's not something that can be done for cards that have on them data that should be retained. And if other data can be replicated only by cloning a card, the position is untenable. I suppose it's my unfamiliarity with Linux. I'm not surprised that there isn't a precompiled version of Perl 5.16 for the Pi, but I was expecting it to be possible to create one. The hours of compiling are guaranteed to put people off using anything but the system Perl on a Pi, which may be why Python is their language of choice.

Regards,

John Davies

[ambrus]: choroba: that doesn't matter, the cookies are independent on the webserver, they just have to contain your username and crypted password with a seed of the user's choice, you can change the hostname or even construct a cookie without asking the server
[ambrus]: choroba: and for perlmonks (but not for everything2), you don't even need a cookie, you can just send a username and password parameter in every request, and this is even documented in What XML generators are currently available on PerlMonks?
[holli]: i admire you choroba, if i had to work at such a place, i wouldn't last long. as bosses don't like if someone calls them clueless idiots
[ambrus]: (The cookie format is not documented anywhere afaik, but it's trivial to reverse engineer even without being a pmdev.)
[holli]: or "ignorant bricks" (that is not a typo)
[choroba]: holli The money wasn't bad :-)
