comment Slow boot on Fedora 16: why and how to improve?
@fpmurphy: thanks. You're answer is quite succinct and I can't follow, could you make it a detailed answer? I don't know how to remove wl interfaces scanning from boot nor do I know how to boot the way you suggested.

comment How to make the terminal display user@machine in bold letters?
Nice, I added a new line before the [user@host] which makes each command yet more readable (it should be set so by default on terminal imo).

Thanks for this. I suppose I also had to copy all of the above in ~/.bashrc?

Nice and explanatory answer, +1. Still I found hesse's answer more to the point, so I chose it instead.

Changed title accordingly to the emerging importance of the rationale versus popular browsers.

Were the application to handle authentication directly with the OpenID provider, would it make a difference? The user would also have to provide his username and password to the application, which by all means is worse in terms of security than using a cookie. Isn't it?

Retrieving cookies of a browser like Mozilla though, is a very easy thing to do apparently. I have copied a code sample elsewhere. I don't really see how that is necessarily a bad behaviour: the user logged on to the OpenID provider already, if the user authorises explicitly the use of his cookies, it shouldn't be an issue. I have proposed elsewhere the idea of Centralised Cookie Management to cope with these situations.

@enzotib: I get your point and i'd prefer OpenID to be made easier for desktop development instead.
