"Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that curiosity killed the cat, I say only the cat died nobly." - Arnold Edinborough

Unfortunately I had to miss the nginxconf for this year, but with it going on right now I got a bit nostalgic and dug out my t-shirt from last year and noticed an easter egg I hadn’t seen until now. On the back of the shirt are the headers of a HTTP response with the line:

Set-Cookie: nginxconf=Q29tZSB0byB0aGUgZGFyayBzaWRlLCB3ZSBoYXZlIGNvb2tpZXMgZHVyaW5nIGJyZWFrIHRpbWUK

Which, if we base64 decode it, translates to:

Come to the dark side, we have cookies during break time

I don’t remember the cookies being very good, though, hopefully that’s something they fixed for this year. 🙂
