mukund writes "Herb is a new free software project which provides a complete set of CAD programs and libraries for the specification, design and validation of VLSI circuits. It includes a VHDL simulator, logic synthesis tools, automatic place and route tools, layout editors, portable CMOS standard cell libraries and custom block generators for creating custom high performance circuits. Herb started as a fork of the Alliance project to update its legacy code and support new features. The first release of Herb, version 0.9.0 is now available. We are looking for more C programmers, so if you're interested in developing Herb, join us in #herb on irc.freenode.net."

If one were to clear a browser's cookies to remove all tracking information, the cookies can be restored back by a website as if they were not cleared at all. I believe this is a serious issue and more people should know about it, so that they clear the cache as well after clearing cookies."
