    I found this error on topcoder. If the problem persists, I hope that they can find the necessary resources to fix it.
    I am glad to see TopCoder landed on his feet after being banned from this site. I miss his comments, they were funnier and more well thought out than most of the articles.

    You don't need an extremely accurate scale to make sure that the weight is less than 7.87365 stone. You just need one that is accurate to as many decimal places as it does show.

  • warreng (disco)

    Obviously, the imperial conversion was not very good. It should have been 7 stone, 12 pounds, 3.6976 ounces.

    I was just wondering why bubblyquirky's username is light gray when all the others are much darker... then I remembered. Discourse is graymapping trust levels.

    This is the problem of not using the proper number of significant digits. There is one significant digit in the original number so there should be one significant digit in the resultant. Round the result to one significant figure i.e. 8 stone.

    As for the battery charge, clearly the clock got reset by an hour or so just after it went on battery power, then it got shut down. It restarted shortly after it was plugged in. Well, that is how I read it anyway.

    My dad has a son who's colourblind. And believe me, it's no laughing matter. What's the colour of that button please?

  • dkf (disco)

    I'm guessing that ipccam was used for goatse…

  • miquelfire (disco)

    That "green" button must have been made by someone with my level of color visibility, as it looks green to me...

    Don't let color impaired people handle the colors on your sites people!

    My dad turned 30,000 days old on 5th March this year and I will be 20,000 days old in January 2020.

    For the woman who lived 122 years and 164 days, 122 years would probably have passed 1900 which wasn't a leap year and I'll assume didn't pass 1800 so it would mean either 29 leap years or 30.

    That means she lived either 44681 or 44682 days.

  • Cbuttius (disco)

    There is no difference between green and amber is there? There both mean go. Just amber means get on with it a bit quicker..

  • Cbuttius (disco) in reply to Cbuttius

    And yes they should increase the capacity to allow 63.5kg which is exactly 10 stone, and then they can have nice round numbers.

    Yeah, that button also looks green to me. Which is not surprising, as I'm also red-green colorblind. Sort of funny - the development team I was on for a while, fully half of the development team (3 of the 4 males, including myself) was colorblind. One of them filed a bug like "these colors you chose to differentiate proces states look the same", and then me and the other guy both agreed, and that's how we all learned that the other 2 were also red-green colorblind. And then we added long-needed palette options to that dialog. >.>

    So I guess it's sort of a WTF in that nobody who wasn't colorblind looked at the instructions before it went public, but still.

  • cartman82 (disco) in reply to neminem

    All colorblind people on TDWTF should pick the same green avatar as yours, in solidarity.

  • flwf (disco) in reply to cartman82

    That is mean!

  • Arantor (disco) in reply to flwf

    Then we'd have to invoke Jeff to create a new rule to prevent such things.

  • flwf (disco) in reply to Arantor

    Well, it's funny too...

  • chubertdev (disco)

    Oh, I see it. The button is a sailboat!

    Little did you know Orange is the new Green. Oranges around the world have been renamed to Greens since the colors Green and Orange have traded places.

    Yes, yes, that's the one. But of course you can just imagine Jeff coming up with a rule and bastardising Discourse some more.

    I sometimes wonder if uploading an avatar will eventually be compared against all current avatars...

    I once got a replacement for a broken POÄNG chair from IKEA. When I handed in the broken one I learned that the weight limit for that chair was 90 kg. Pity I never saw any warning concerning that weigh t limit...

    I’d say the bigger WTF is that the person who made it, assuming he was colorblind, didn’t stop and find someone who wasn’t when writing those instructions and/or creating that button.
  • faoileag (disco) in reply to Arantor
    Arantor:

    No, he won't. meta.d is *his* turf, and if he doesn't like multiple people having the same avatar, it's ok for him to change that.

    If he would do the same here, where he still has admin rights but what is not on his home ground, it would mean a clear abuse of his rights.

    That would probably translate into "gloves off" for TDWTF community, and meta.d might then have some very interesting times ahead of it.

    In the Chinese meaning of the phrase.

  • Arantor (disco) in reply to faoileag

    That's not what I meant.

    I can actually imagine him convincing everyone else to add in a detection against same-avatar use at the software level because that's not civilised.

    But yes, if he were to try that here, the result would not end well.

  • chubertdev (disco) in reply to Arantor

    HTML5 validation will allow you to add a unique attribute to the avatar image upload element, so you can prevent duplicate avatars on the client-side. After implementing this, we'll have funny exploiting the lack of server-side validation.

    I think this was a typo or autocowrecked-fail but it's funnier and probably more true than what should have been there.

  • chubertdev (disco) in reply to mott555

    On my laptop, it was a typo. My fingers often type without consulting my brain.
