Things that really tick me off

For those that know me, seeing a title like Things that really tick me off elicits a large groan and probably some wonder as to if there is enough storage available on the planet to house all of them. But I digress.

I have always hated the term “cookie” with regard to the state mechanism used with HTTP. It’s a token people! Call it what it is and there’s less opportunity for confusion. Well, it seems that Sun has one-upped that with muffin (no, really).

  • “What’s a muffin?”
  • “It’s a cookie.”
  • “What’s a cookie?”
  • “It’s a token.”
  • “Why didn’t they just call it a token then?”
  • [sigh]

Whee!
