Hi, I'm Nathan, nice to meet you!
I'm happily married to my best friend, we've got the cutest dog in the world, and we live on a spiffy little homestead just south of Pleasant Hill, Ohio.
I'm a Christian and a minister for the Lord Jesus Christ. If you ever need anything, I'd be more than happy to provide prayer and support.

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.Philippians 4:8, New Living Translation
How Facebook sets and uses cross-domain cookies
I’ve seen a lot of confusion about this lately, so I thought I’d make a quick writeup to explain how facebook does it. (I’ll also give a quick tip on how you can do it yourself.)

IMPORTANT SECURITY NOTICE
Versions 1.9 and older are vulnerable to a XSS attack. Please upgrade to 1.9.1 or newer immediately!

They use impossible-to-read captcha images, or they make users jump through some kind of hoop to get the email address instead of just clicking on it. This can mean lost sales and opportunities for you, because each hurdle turns away more users.
