Everytime clientraw updates my information on the internet there is a cookie deposited in my Temporary Internet Files folder. Last night I deleted 512Mb of cookies and for the two hours my PC has been on today I have collected another 14Mb. EVERY file that is in the local web folder uploads and leaves a cookie and clientraw leaves one everytime it access the internet.
ftpupd has c***ed out twice in those two hours also.
The cookie thing is unacceptable. Can anyone tell me why this is happening and/or what the problem is?
It isn’t so much the cookies as it is clientraw posting 42 iterations in 3 minutes which is about 14 per minute of presence on the site. They don’t look normal to me they say something like clientrraw.txt?nocache= (followed by a 9 digit number) then under Internet Address column it gives the full name of the site followed by /clientraw.txt?nocache= and the same 9 digit number and they are all text files.
Every time a file is accessed on the Internet, a cached version is downloaded to your computer. In order for interactive data to display, it must download a file… your clientraw.txt file. If it happens every x seconds… that’s a file every x seconds. There’s nothing wrong with this operation… it is perfectly normal.
This is also the same way Ajax works whenever you view an Ajax weather page.
Because I can see no reason to put 14 cookies per minute on anyone’s PC. In my 40 years of IT experience I learned the hard way that cookies are by and large spyware. For instance,you cannot go to any site on the internet and not pick up a “doubleclick” data miner cookie. And also your site URL is hanging out there for any and all to see and/or access. Although the site cannot be changed by anyone but me (hopefully) I just think it’s a bug and needs to be fixed. JMHBOCO.
