Delicious cookies on my sites

Since opening up the anagram solver ( http://word-finder.gb4.eu ) and the URL Shortener ( http://gb4.eu ) I was reminded that my sites need to comply with the EU Laws on cookies.

The sites do not use cookies. But I had to pop up a dismissable box to explain that. Which required the use of a cookie.

This is my cookie policy for those sites:

A Poem: Winter's Children

Winter’s children

Don’t look left or right
  Drive fast keep your face ahead
    Ignore the nearly dead
      Under formaldehyde light.
Bent and staining days perfect white.
Please, give of your daily bread,
  Encourage with a kind word said.
Even staining life’s delight
  You’ll help yourself as well as those
    Who dwell in cold free from cover,
      Sad and cringing, afraid to sleep,
        Public in their humbling throes.
Winter’s not the kindest partner
  Jealous in her frozen keep.

Anagram solver

As a big fan of on line words games and apps like Scrabble, Word Chums and so on, I often find myself in need of a little help.

There are, of course, a gazillion anagram solvers on line but none really seemed to match my needs.

So I made one.

It took me about two hours to code and sixteen to come up with the title, "@garybak's word finder".

Sixteen hours well spent, I'm sure you'll agree.

It's made to load quickly on my iPhone 5 so I can cheat enhance my scoring ability quite rapidly.

It's here if you'd like to give it a go.
