Oh well, I'll settle for infinite coffees.

Sincerely,

"I was rushing to catch my train at St. Pancras the other day,"

But you had time to stop, take out your phone, load the camera application and take a picture...

Nancy Pelosi said that for the Samsung KIES software, you have to accept the license agreement so that you can find out what is in it.

I can't be bothered to think of any new comments today either. I'm going to go back thru old WTFs, find my comments, and copy/paste. I'm sure there were some great flame wars that died from neglect rather than getting everyone to agree that JavaScript is TRWTF.

Pay attention, advertisers! There is little reason to come back to this site when Alex frequently posts merely 2 articles per week. I've ignored and ad-blocked your photos accordingly.

Thank you Alex for brightening up my day :)

Important Memo for Winston Smith:

2012-05-04 14:47 • by Department of Truth (unregistered)
Wout van Poppel:

Original: Wout van Poppel remarked, "Yesterday's newspaper didn't really contain any interesting news, but at least the photo captions were interesting."

Correction:"The newspaper didn't really contain any interesting news," writes Wout van Poppel "but at least it has interesting photo captions which serve to draw attention quite well."


Christian Riesen:

Original:Christian Riesen normally enjoys playing the lottery, but for now, he's is going to hold onto his money for another day.

Correction:"I don't know what they were thinking putting this ad up," writes Christian Riesen, "but I think I can hold my enthusiasm for that gigantic jackpot easy."


Scott Coonce:

Original:"I saw this while upgrading the Samsung KIES software on Windows. Wasn't sure if I should accept the empty license agreement or not," wrote Scott C..

Correction:"I spotted this while upgrading the Samsung KIES software on Windows," writes Scott Coonce, "I wasn't sure if I should accept the empty license agreement or not."


David:

Original:"I got this error when trying to upgrade PostgreSQL using its 'Stack Builder' package installation tool," writes David, "I guess these guys must really like cloud computing!"

Correction:"I got this error when trying to upgrade PostgreSQL," writes David, "they must really like cloud computing."


Andrew:

Original:"If I'm reading this right," notes Andrew, "If I can earn 5 more points and become a 'Gold Member", Starbucks will give me free coffee for every non star I receive."

Correction:"Free drink every 0 stars?" writes Andrew ,"wow, now I really want to get to be a 'Gold' members!"


Dwayne:

Original:"Judging by this email I received from Equifax, I guess I can assume that null news is also good news," writes Dwayne.

Correction:"I'd hate to be selfish and not share null with the other readers of the Daily WTF," wrote Dwayne, "I hope you find the same benefits of null that I have."


Dazzie B.:

Original:"I was rushing to catch my train at St. Pancras the other day, but it seems I did so for nothing," writes Dazzie B., "The train wasn't due to arrive for another week!"

Correction:"I was rushing to catch my train at St. Pancras the other day," notes D Bee, "but it appears there was plenty of time before it departed."

Problem: My daily-morning-time-waster-while-email-is-loading website isn't always there for me.

Solution: Move it from my bookmarks toolbar to my weekly bookmarks folder. TDWTF, meet Dilbert!

New daily time-waster: TechDirt.

New problem: New daily time waster is too real. Oh well.

Re the zero jackpot: Normally the payout is about $.50 on the dollar (28 million tickets = 1 win). This is even worse than usual. Nothing like making the poor payout obvious.

Re the blank license: Even if it were readable, you'd have no idea what you were agreeing to (and the usual Flyspeck 4 font is tough to read). The 0pt font is a nice touch, though.

Re the cloud computing: Of course this failed. The 42nd level should have been "cloud_computing". Could this be called "clod computing"?

Re the departure time: No, D Bee, you'd better hurry. That's 0.9999 minutes!

Re null benefits: Gee! A letter from null. And here I thought it was only a bit dump.

Re no interesting news: It's a clumsy language. Yxy means hello and xyx means goodbye. You should see what it takes to ask for a hospital.

Re free drink: So how many drinks can I get for 1 star?

I think after giving us get_words_from_a_number_which_is_passed_as_a_perimeter_into_this_function, Alex deserves a break. As Acacio pointed out there:
Acacio:
Wow, just wow. I've read a lot of stupid stuff in the DWTF but this one is just ... wow.
In so many dimensions....

We can close DWTF: after this one, all the rest will paleas watered down beer.

Based on all of the bitching I see with regards to the feeling that people are getting ripped off by the number of posts that are making it to the main page, I can only assume TDWTF has been overrun by redditors.

Surely some "classic WTF" would be far superior to package with a plea to click the advertising, if there's no new content to be had.

That Equifax one is because they use the cheapest offshore development labor they can find, the sort of "develotards" who make retarded monkeys having seizures look like rocket scientists. And then they wonder why stuff like this happens. Good riddance to that sh*thole.

What sort of application prints the word null when it has a null value ?

You can get that easily with db null -> JSON -> javascript - a bit scary indeed.

TRWTF is that he was rushing to catch a train at St Pancras, but he went to a different station and tried to get on a train that was going TO St Pancras.
