It took me a month before my n-number was muscle memory. I still remember my student number as well,when you're typing something at least once a day for years it tends to stick.

And for what it's worth, the WTF is a pilot error.

Looks like somebody forgot to tie Bangor to the dock over in Maine and it floated away again.

And Monmouth.


Yes, it's funny how so many cities in Britain are apparently named after places in the United Staets. :-)

Bangor, Monmouth, Newtown, Newport, Swansea, Cardiff.... those Brits aren't very imaginative, are they? Look what happens when they try: "Fishguard".

This is actually a repost, although last time I believe it was a newspaper article whose characters were being corrupted because the software couldn't cope with gaps in the font definition or some such.

Herohtar:
TRWTF is Backup Exec completing anything successfully. Though I suppose it actually didn't since it's still throwing errors.
The Backup Exec Server service decided to shut down immediately, but without returning an error code, so that the service control manager thought that it had shut down successfully. However this gave it a headache as it had started the Server service in order to start the Job Engine which depends on it. Thus the Job Engine failed to start because the Server completed succesfully.

Normally you can just hit "Switch User" and type in your username/password. You'll notice that option is missing from the screenshot - that's because it wasn't there, probably because of corporate security settings. Regardless, I wonder if it would have logged me in to a separate session...

Watson:

Maybe Michael Dowden's previous keyboard had an ENTER key that was two rows tall, while the current one has an ENTER key that is only one row tall - and the current backslash key occupies space that the old keyboard used for the ENTER key's extra height. If you tended to strike the old ENTER key on its upper half, the same muscle movements would have you hitting backslash.

Which reminds me of one of my favourite (for sarcastic values of "favourite") keyboards: the one where <POWER> <SLEEP> and <WAKEUP> were ordinary keys placed just under <DELETE> <END> and <PGDN>, which were naturally moved upwards to make room for them.


Exactly right Watson. It happened only a couple days into switching keyboard layouts.

First of all, the Belgian equivalent of LLC is BVBA in Dutch or SARL in French, so most likely this company is Flemish and no American slang references were intended. And of course the reason for the funny boxes is somebody sent the ad in a file format that doesn't embed fonts, or didn't turn on font embedding when saving to a file format where font embedding is optional, and then the paper loaded the file up and never checked to make sure it looked any good, but the paper's machine didn't have the font installed, ergo, fail.

Joe:
It's somewhat better than requesting the mother's "maiden name". Or it would be if not for the fact that at least in the US it is quite commonly used as the woman's middle name after she's married.


Define 'quite commonly.' More than one? Never met a married woman in my life whose middle name was her maiden name. Hyphenated last name, sure, met a few of _those_.


Ever heard of Hillary Rodham Clinton?

So what's wrong with the accounting one?
(maybe its too early and I'm missing something... But your debits must equal credits to balance out the journal...)
Yep, and according to the error message they do equal, except that they don't.

The fault is probably that they used a FLOAT to store currency.

$171,223.18 != $171,223.18 only when using a float.

Partly because of the additional digits after the decimal place (the naive reason) but also because of the way floats work.

Never, ever try for a float equality. It simply doesn't work.
If you must compare for float equality, you need a fuzzy-compare.

I don't get it. In the image I see, the two numbers ARE equal (both end in .18)

The place I work for has us enter our employee ID number as our user name, except in our payroll system, where it's first and middle initials followed by last name.

CAPTCHA: capio - change one letter of this and you know what brand of watch I buy...
