    I imagine the Garfield code is

    if(CurrentYear - BirthYear > 100) then error_msg();

    The drop down goes to 1908 because the check was first implemented in 2008.

    +1 for Garfield.com allowing sperms to use the site: dec 31 2017 is a perfectly valid birthdate!

    Yeah it sounds like it was poorly made and probably has to be manually updated every year to add a new year.

    Addendum 2017-02-03 09:00: And The OkResult thing is just a copy/paste error in the documentation.

  • Carl Witthoft (google)

    So don't leave us in suspense, MichaelC: did you click "yes" or "no" for "was this info helpful?" ? 9 Hey look at that: a grammatically correct use of '?"?' . <-- Hey, look a grammatically correct use of " '?"/' " .

    Addendum 2017-02-03 09:47: oops. dang SHIFT key missed the second "?" there

    I had that same steam error the other day and I almost submitted it, but didn't think a server issue was really wtf-worthy... clearly I was wrong.

    Sperms trying to access site on Dec 31, 2017 do not exist yet

  • Carl Witthoft (google) in reply to :o

    ok, then, the eggs do.

    Is that some new trend in usability, 1 button apps?

  • Michael C (unregistered) in reply to Carl Witthoft

    I didn't click either of them - lost the will to live at that point...(the bloody thing keeps re-installing without me doing anything - most annoying!)

  • _that_guy_ (unregistered)

    I saw the steam errons as well.

    I suspect the Garfield problem is that they're storing the year using only two digits...

    Someone confused IHttpActionResult for HttpResponseMessage. IHttpActionResult is an interface to an async action result that will return a HttpResponseMessage, which of course has an HTTP Response code.

    Now the async stuff, that's a whole 'nother clusterf*ck.

    The thought that the Garfield web site might show different things to people of different ages.....

  • Scarlet_Manuka (nodebb) in reply to Watson

    If you're over 18 you get the "adult content" version?

  • just me (unregistered) in reply to Scarlet_Manuka

    Not sure I'd want to see Garfield "adult content"....

  • TheCPUWizard (unregistered)

    IHttpActionResult is not revolutionary in any way, as it simply builds around the familiar HttpResponseMessage, but it is tremendously useful. It is effectively a factory for HttpResponseMessage, and by implementing the interface you provide instructions on how a new response should be constructed.

    Tom needs to work on his mathematics - 1908 does not mean he's 101 years old - he'd be 108 or 109 years old...

  • Ex-lurker (unregistered) in reply to Geek

    Maybe Tom submitted this screenshot 8 to 9 years ago

  • Not very geek (unregistered) in reply to Geek

    And Geek needs to work on his reading comprehension. It clearly says that year must be at least 1917.

    By excluding people over a hundred years old, garfield.com is missing more than half of their audience.

  • Richard (unregistered) in reply to Geek

    I think what he's saying is that, even if he'd selected 1916 (ie: 101 years old), it would still have been rejected. Nobody older than 100 is allowed to read the site.
