Especially in Glasgow of all places, if you said this to someones face, you'd get your heed caved in. What makes the Internet so special that it absolves idiots from responsibility for their words?

It's a simple enough rule of thumb, if you wouldn't say it in real life to someones face, then don't say it online behind a shield of anonymity.

"Same-origin policy is a nightmare for use with CDNs"

It's not *that* big a deal. We've been using Rackspace CDN solution, and they allow you to set "Access-Control-Allow-Origin:*". After that it's just a matter of enabling CORS in your AJAX, which is one line of jQuery. Then you can fetch data from anywhere without your browser croaking.

All great discoveries are made by mistake. -- Young
