So the EU Cookie law is now in full effect it seems, and so all around the web we're seeing things such as modal boxes and screen topping notices telling us what Cookies are, and that this site uses them.
The whole irony of this situation (for me at least) is that these notifications probably store your recorded acceptance by.. yep, you guessed it, a cookie.
Storing it via Session is just silly, and not user friendly as it'll pop up every time you load the site. Storing the recorded result via a database field is equally stupid, it's needless overhead.
Do you think that the whole cookie law is "half baked"? (ha, sorry, I had to go there). What are you doing on your site to comply? Do you fully understand the new law? I know I sure as hell don't.
PS, this site doesn't use personally identifiable cookies, on account of my Remember Me function not even working. My crappy code saved me a job! :)
