Lots of sites use Flash cookies (LSOs) to track you in addition to the good old fashioned HTTP cookies.

Ghostery does a pretty good job of deleting Flash cookies, but it takes a brutal all-or-nothing approach; it'll delete them all if you enable the option.

If you want finer control over your Flash cookies you'll also need Better Privacy. Now you can save your progress when playing Kongregate games but not get tracked while you do so :)

The title is clearly a poorly punctuated printing of a quote from Yoda, when asked by a journalist how he would act.

Yoda, of course, considers the supporters of Sarah Palin to be merely an inconvenience. To resolve the situation, he would use the power of the Force to communicate across time with Paul Revere, then armed with that primary source he would write an authoritative history on Wikipedia.

Yoda, as usual, put this more succinctly, if rather enigmatically; "Palin fans? Trying. To edit Wikipedia, Paul Revere page!"

YES, pull out that laptop. What type of laptop is it? What are the specs? Why did you choose that particular setup? Do you do your development on the laptop or on a desktop? What are the pros and cons of each? Bam... Another set of questions that I can use to assess your suitability for the position. Poifect.
