Scraping the bottom of the barrel this week, we accepted
a couple of submissions that aren’t, by any means, Errors.
But they’re undoubtedly amusing to the likes of those
who haunt these pages, and as such, bon appetit.
Dave A. wondered
“I wasn’t sure if you would really accept this as an Error’d,
because it only *looks* like an error, which is why it
caught my eye, but it isn’t! So, on with the snark:
You’d think there’d be Null chance that someone would
name a restaurant like this, right? But NO! (Or as YAML
would say, Norway!) This really exists — I haven’t been
there yet but at the very least its website isn’t Null.
Maybe two Nulls are like a double negative, making it positively exist?”
It doesn’t look very filling.
François P. figures
“Validating phone numbers is hard. Fortunately, naming the
field ‘User contact information’ instead bypasses the problem
entirely. Now I can easily enter my 12-single-byte-letters
phone number with ease.”
“I’m not THAT old. But at least I made the front cover – how cool is that?”
Adam R. webster’d up a curiosity.
“I was looking for definitions of ‘wrassle’. Not only was
that not in the dictionary, the site felt
compelled to inform me that neither was ‘ntshingwayo’ ”
And finally, deep thinking
Tim R. gave Americans some thoughtfood
for the long weekend.
“It’s not really an error as such, but it’s surely a WTF.
If you’re fortunate enough to have a Microsoft account
you’ve probably seen this dialog a million times before
but have you ever stopped to think about what it means?
The default action is agree Yes to ‘Stay signed in?’,
but No to ‘Don’t show this again’, so should it keep
asking you every time you don’t sign in?”
