If you have trouble with your browser, you’ve probably contacted IT and been asked to delete your cookies. They’re the way websites track your usage, and you’ve undoubtedly had to click through a couple of messages about them.
If a website or browser isn’t working the way it should, step one is to clear your cookies. This is fine for most people, but not everyone. Don’t worry CM, it’s just an industry term. The name came from web-browser programmer Lou Montulli, who derived it from the term “magic cookie,” which is a package of data a program receives and then sends back unchanged. That term first appeared in 1979.
We Recommend Vocal Warm-Ups
Have you ever been “in the zone?” Sometimes it's called hacking your flow, or something stupid like that. People who work in what might be called an art form love it when this happens. Time disappears, problems get solved, and distractions are costly.
Now, not many people would call programming an art form, but there are some similarities. If programmers are disrupted, they can get cranky. This sign is a warning about the best way to make your presence known. We'd like to know how many people actually do this. We absolutely would, but some people are just too busy to slow down.
Workers, Uh, Find a Way
As you gaze into the dreamy eyes of Jeff Goldblum, try not to get lost. Wait, come back! Forget it, he's gone. These picture frames all come from the same charity shop, and one of the workers decided they would be more attractive if they had pictures inside them, not just a bare background.
More attractive they indeed are since the worker decided to put a different picture of Goldblum inside each one. We'd love to know just how many different frames were present inside the store. We only see three, but there's a good chance there were a lot more.
I Want to Be Disappointed on My Own Time
The finale for “Game of Thrones” was one of the most-watched pieces of television in the last decade, if not the most. Even those who didn't watch it heard about the fallout since by pretty much all accounts it was an immense disaster from a character, storytelling, and plotting perspective. Of course, it was going to be the biggest topic of conversation at the office the next day.
This IT guy couldn't catch it live, and he made sure everybody he came across knew about it. He had the threats to back it up. If you don't know what a 56K modem is like, imagine each of the pictures on this list taking a good minute or so just to show up. Not one minute for all of them – one minute each. The horror.
Office Dog Defense
You're only going to see this in a dog-friendly office, but they're becoming more and more popular these days. Those kinds of places are often full of bean bag chairs and other comfy seating apparatuses, so if a cowardly little pooch is hiding inside one, it's good to have signs to warn other potential sitters.
The way that dachshund is peering out of his hidey-hole makes us think there's a very good reason someone wrote up the sign. He's already small enough, you don't need to squash him flat. Another point for bigger dogs in the ongoing battle of breeds.
