Why is engineertrooper.com using cookies?
I don't just sit 10 minutes about the most content. Normally it takes hours of my free time. I don't want to produce run-of-the-mill-content like a lot of other sites do it already. Running a server or webspace and owning software also generates certain costs. I would like to cover at least a small part of this. This can be done, for example, through advertising money. That's why I will be happy if at least the cookies for advertising have been enabled and accepted by you! So that a few cents or euros can come together to cover the costs.
Cookies, delivered as technology, a simple way to get more functionality into a website. The visitor uses this functionality for the own benefit. The solutions should improve the usability and accessibility for the visitor. That sounds great, right? Unfortunately, it's the half-truth only.
If the site is showing third-party content (e.g. YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, ...), cookies from these third-party providers are also loaded. Actually, the website visited has limited influence on these cookies only. Fort example, YouTube offers an option of embedding videos without cookies. Something like that is also existing for Google AdSense. Unfortunately, not all third-party cookies can be deactivated or the way cookies work can be adjusted in detail.
