- HackBar: When manipulating a URI is too cumbersome, you may want to invest in this little add-on. Take a URI you’re on and split each parameter into a separate line in a small text editor in your toolbar. Then you’ll have quick access to encode, encrypt, increment or decrement parameters easily for POST or GET calls.

And Indian woman in a blue blouse showing one shoulder smiled at me sheepishly as I politely smiled an nodded. Her eyes darted to what was in my hands and she then rolled her eyes – she purposefully did not make any eye contact.
As I checked out the clerk noticing my uneasiness said, “Don’t worry, you haven’t lost your man card just yet.”
So far its an easy read. I wished I read this in high-school; boy never knew girls noticed the smallest things about you – I’m still oblivious to all that.
