These new 3 x 8192 monitors are especially designed for the narrow minded. Forget 16:9, here comes 0.0033:9!

"It works Tim" is probably a better message than "It's dead, Jim"...

Ha, the last VS11 beta setup gave me the "Asia" error once.

You actually need special glasses to look at these monitors.

Asia isn't the problem, she's the developer.

(I have two friends named Asia.)

Does anyone else find it somewhat disturbing that Facebook apparantly saves your old passwords as well?

No? Why would it be disturbing? Most sensible account managers do that (including windows, if I am not mistaken). In fact, any website with a frequent backup policy will have a copy of your old passwords as well.

I would be a lot more concerned if they stored them as plain text, but there is no indication to that. And if, you know, I'd actually have a facebook account.

You'll notice there's no comma in "It works Tim." Clearly, whatever "it" may be, it is working Tim. Tim is the direct object, not the addressee.

Well, that fare does give you better value in terms of changes of train per pound.

Of course that's the cheapest fare. Everyone knows that time is money and that pounds are a unit of weight. So that fare is both the cheapest and the heaviest.

They probably don't even store the passwords. Probably just a salted hash of some sort.

Hey, I just did a traceroute to that 172.18.112.157 address "at Toronto's Union station" and discovered it is inside my own network! WTF? Grant Cullen did you hack us??!!!

Yup, Asia is a problem; a very big problem that I don't want to deal with, but a problem nonetheless.

As for the Toronto airport sign, isn't TRWTF that it's missing the French version of the text?

No; that would be at the other end. This is, after all, just the leftmost few entries of 8192 (x3).
