    I actually work at a credit union that uses that home banking software. And it does tie audio response (home teller) with internet banking. We've been trying to get the vendor to change the message for years ... with much success as you can tell! Restart session is a default link that takes you back to the logon page. Which is a dumb idea if you're getting an error message on the logon page!

    If anyone was wondering what a "continuums bit" is, here you go, complete with an explanatory comment:

    /*[Removed Chinese comment due to Akismet being crap]*/
    [Redacted entire code sample due to Akismet being crap]
    

    [FYI - it disallows any two consecutive characters]

    Apparently, Akismet thinks this is spam. Interesting, considering there are no fucking links in this comment at all. Can we please take Akismet out back and shoot the pathetic waste of space in the head?

    Still spam apparently.

    Still spam. I'd remove the links but there aren't any. What the hell? Why is this happening?

    I must have pissed of an Akismet staff member at some point.

    I think I get it now - the code sample had a Chinese comment. Obviously Akismet just assumes that any Chinese writing automatically makes you a spammer and blocks your message. In other words, Akismet is fucking racist and it should die in the fire of bigotry from which it came. Thanks for listening.

    So I removed the Chinese comment and it's still flagged as spam. Going to give up on this soon.

    Removed code tags, does that make you feel better Akismet?

    No, apparently not.

    OK, so I've basicaly redacted everything in this post and just left the Akismet flaming so at least a mod might see the pain that Akismet is causing. Bring back the fucking spammers.

    This comment cannot magically do the right thing.

    Loading your comment caused TDWTF to crash. This is most likely caused by a missing CAPTCHA or a CAPTCHA that has been loaded as replacement for a missing CAPTCHA. TDWTF cannot easily determine whether a replacement CAPTCHA is of a new or older version. It will load a CAPTCHA with the same CAPTCHA ID as the missing CAPTCHA. This means that if the author makes incompatible CAPTCHAs with the same CAPTCHA ID TDWTF cannot magically do the right thing. In most cases TDWTF will load the comment and not crash, but this is an exception. Please load the comment with the appropriate CAPTCHAs. When loading a comment still crashes when all CAPTCHAs are found you should file a bug report. The missing CAPTCHAs are:

    I think it's because in the picture there are no Yes/No buttons. But on all the gas pumps I've seen (in the US), there are Yes and No buttons. Usually they are used to ask if you want a receipt, but they should also work for the car wash upsell.

    I routinely go to a gas station that does this. The Yes/No buttons are usually by the keypad.

    You know, the one not shown in the picture with the buttons to select a payment type and enter in a PIN if you select Debit.

    "But I was riding a motorbike!"

    Actually no, the WTF is not that it's asking you if you want a car-wash. The WTF is that it's asking "yes or no?" but does not visibly provide any means to enter an answer. Do keep up!

    Perhaps if you saw the entire display, with the other keypad next to the cropped image, you would have seen the yes and no buttons there.

    But, I do agree that it's a poor design choice to not use the buttons surrounding the screen in addition to the existing yes/no buttons, since it's apparently not obvious to some that they exist.

    Huzzah! There's finally something on one of these error'd features that I've seen before.

    The OpenTTD error comes from a truly awesome game - Transport Tycoon Deluxe. There's a great open-source project now freely available. The problem seen here is related to the fact that the in-game graphics files are copyrighted and not included with the open-source distribution. You need to get a set of new graphics files to make the game work, UGH! It's totally worth the hassle to play the game.

    Wow..I submitted that 3 billion $ WTF picture at least 6 months ago. Can't believe it's still like that on amazon. And I ended up paying $170 for one. So I saved considerably more than the 600 million dollar discount "damlow prices" was offering me. :)
