I was highly amused to hear that the National Security Agency (NSA) in the US of A had cocked things up with cookies on its Web site.
According to newswire reports, Wikipedia and all-round Google expert Daniel Brandt found two persistent cookies on the NSA's Web site that were set to expire in - wait for it - 2035.
This, apparently, is in volation of federal law.
The NSA has removed the cookies after the Associated Press started looking into the affair.
It was all a mistake caused by a software upgrade, the NSA bleated.
Happy New Year everyone!
