    The real WTF is obviously what the heck someone is doing in Oldenburg (and that I knew this is the town where the train station picture was taken). On the other hand, it is the cradle of many European monarchies, but then again, who cares.

  • nt (unregistered)

    Come on, aren't you excited that Translation Not Available!?

    TRWTF is that "Memory Lost!!" isn't translated when the station is obviously in Germany.

    You missed some on the page itself, BlueEagle. I count... #01 -- The title bar #02 -- The large text center left between the graphics #03 -- The title text in dialog box on the right #04 -- The body text in the same box #05 -- The field title in the same box #06 -- The text just under the field #07 -- The button in the dialog box #08 -- The error next to the button #09 & #10 -- Two links at the bottom of the page #11 -- Immediately after the copyright text

    I think that's complete.

  • EvanED (cs)

    The "Translation Not Available" in place of the "All Rights Reserved" takes that one from being slightly amusing to real laugh inducing.

    The question was "how many can you find?" So he should stick with his original answer.

    I think this is nitpicking given that no website like that has ever sent anyone anything except spam.

    I wonder what it would have looked like if the translation had been available...

    About that third picture...

    Someone was probably trying to reference an object after it was disposed/finalized/whatever, and thus dead, and the developer of the object put in some exception throwing code to handle the already-disposed/... case. The program itself has a race condition with regard to that object, exposed there for whatever reason. It's not a code WTF, just something that should not be visible in the UI.

    I'm missing something here: what's going on in the Windows Desktop Search screenshot?

    When you uninstall a program (say, Windows Desktop Search) on XP SP2 (possibly only if certain settings/regkeys are hit or if it register dlls -- I run Vista at home and only really see XP on my secondary test machine at work, which has IT dicking with the registry and so forth), it will warn you about all the programs you installed since installing Windows Desktop Search. The idea is that you can give it a quick glance and if something obviously depends on the thing you're installing, you should get rid of it first.

    In this case, the guy installed a lot of software since installing Windows Desktop Search, then tried to uninstall it.

    I don't know where you got this from, but I remember seeing it in real life when surfing the Gaydar website a couple weeks ago. Basically when the site was too heavily loaded, every bit of text said "Translation not available" instead of what it should really say. It didn't impact usability much because any reasonably heavy user would already have known what all the links and buttons were. You just click the "TNA" that's to the right of the default "TNA", that sort of thing.

    After a few minutes the population of hungry queens went down (so to speak) and the site was fully up again with real English texts.

    So, why is it in Error'd? Sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do.

    Or is this a case of "The Real WTF is Windows Desktop Search?"
