Procedural Programming: It’s Back? It Never Went Away – Kevlin Henney [ACCU 2018] – YouTube

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/05/09

If you haven’t been in the software development arena for the last 50 years, then watch this and learn all “modern” stuff has been around for ages:

Most if it comes from the era of Algol, make, AWK and the famous Structured Programming book (which is not about procedures, but about control flow).

So watch Procedural Programming: It’s Back? It Never Went Away – Kevlin Henney [ACCU 2018] – YouTube

Slide deck: Sideshare: Procedural Programming: It’s Back? It Never Went Away – Kevlin Henney [ACCU 2018]

Then read [WayBack] ISBN 9780122005503 – Structured Programming (A.P.I.C. studies in data processing, no. 8)

When a site creates way too many cookies, you get a “Bad Request – Request Too Long”

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/05/09

I a while ago, I had this error:

Bad Request – Request Too Long


HTTP Error 400. The size of the request headers is too long.

It happened because over time, Microsoft had managed to store 100+ cookies data locally, making the request some 8k in size. Which they could not handle.

Bad Request - Request Too Long HTTP Error 400. The size of the request headers is too long.

Bad Request – Request Too Long HTTP Error 400. The size of the request headers is too long.
