Thought inspired by trawling EZproxy logs to troubleshoot access problems: It'd probably be technically possible, from the logs, to proactively identify usernames having a certain problem with cookies and email them instructions for how to fix it. Super-helpful, or super-creepy?
I don't know how you folks feel about shameless self-promotion, but since it is library-related, and there are so gosh-darn many of you.... here goes. I made this blog-thing.
