    <p><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">So how long into 2022 will the cookie blurb persist? Once a member sees it, store a cookie and never ever show it to them again on that machine. I don’t expect Paul to do it, so you’ll have to hire a good web programmer?!? </span></p>

      <p>I think I see the same problem. No matter how many times I check the "Remember Me" box, thurrott.com doesn’t so I’m hit with ads until I login. It’s remembered until the browser is restarted.</p>

    <p>For what it’s worth, I have that same issue of it not remembering me (Win 10 Pro, Chrome browser). But, Lastpass fills it fast enough I never thought about mentioning it.</p>

    <p>Too many pieces of old software use &lt;conio.h&gt;. No wonder we can’t containerize them.</p>

    <p>What about the main conversation here?</p><p>How do you eat an egg McMuffin without the bread? what does that look like in your hand? IS the US breakfast sandwich something other than an egg McMuffin? USA muffins are fairy cakes in UK (or bun’s in the north of England) I am talking about ‘English’ muffins.</p>

      <p>The cheese is between the meat and the egg. You can hold it with the wrapper. </p>
