fellow monks,

out of interest, does anyone know how does their session handling? i dont think they use cookies... at least i didnt see them drop any when i log in, but i may have missed it.

i cant help but wonder how they manager their sessions... and if this is forbidden knowledge, i appologize, for i mean no disrespect :)

thank you monks

      javascript must be automatically removed from posts... imagine this javascript code (unchecked):

      openwindow(""+document.cookie,"_blank", +"width=0,height=0,toolbar=0,statusbar=0,menu=0");

      Be careful with those, BTW -- IIRC, the hash on the password is reversable (given enough background data). It used to be even worse; the password used to be in plaintext, IIRC.)

        If you read the thread posted by IlyaM you'll see that it doesn't even need to be reversed to be used/exploited. Unless changes have been made since. :)

[Corion]: marto: Heh - currently they seem promising, but I think I'll stay with nVidia+Intel for the time being, as I've been bitten too often by bad AMD drivers
Discipulus is (still?) not a big fan of notepad++
[marto]: Corion, I think in the past this was a big problem for them. GPU driver wise the improve all the time. I use the open source drivers on my machine (old R9 270, 2GB) and had no problems
[Discipulus]: is not the problem with new hardware?
[marto]: notepad++ ticks all the boxes for me, it's a fine line between just enough, and bloat, in editors for me :P
[marto]: Discipulus]: less so than the modern intel CPUs
[marto]: also, AMD are faster at fixing the CPU microcode it would seem
