    Actually it's a WTF for any modern software person to say that. How in the world can you consider Smalltalk, which gave us so much of what we use in so many different languages today, to be a WTF?

    If we're going to flame languages, can we at least stick to VBasic?

    Personally I'll stick to flaming NatStar. As in "flaming NatStar, you'll never believe..."

    Anybody care to admit to having used it?

    I've already seen "This is the last tip" tip in Visual Studio twice and still I often find something new when I start it.

    Don't feed the trolls (even though you're right.)

    It will wrap around to -32768.

    If 3 stars means Avoid, what do -32768 stars mean? Or even just a single star?

    Something tells me that CAPTCHA is indicative of the material being downloaded. Just sayin'.

    Also, TRWTF is that MFD isn't running. I need my reader comics, man!

  • Ilya Ehrenburg (unregistered)

    Something tells me the CAPTCHA is responsible for the ads on the page.

    A propos CAPTCHA: they're hardly distorted, can that actually keep spambots off?

  • AccessGuru (cs) in reply to Ilya Ehrenburg

    Where is MFD? I am bored with error'd.

  • real_aardvark (cs)

    I'm just wondering what the CAPTCHA would offer if one were a Premium User, rather than a sad lonely broke person huddling under a sweaty duvet in a rancid freezing bed-sit.

    Captcha: Dark grey on black? GMAFB.

    A panel lights up and says: "Please do not press this button again".

    The purpose of the Select Cancel seems obvious to me. The Define button is selected when the dialogue is opened, so if you want to choose define you can just press enter, and don't have to use the mouse. Now some users might rather have wanted the Cancel button to be the one choosen such that it could be activated with a single keypress. That is why there is a Select Cancel button. If you click Select Cancel, the Cancel button will be selected, and you can activate it using enter without touching the mouse. And you will still only have pressed one key. Clever.

    Where's the problem there? "pi" + "grape", nothing wrong with that :p

    From reading the dialogue, I assume "Select Cancel" in the Smalltalk one was saying "Select the components that don't have the appropriate properties defined, and cancel the action". So there's regular "Cancel" which just bails out entirely (oops, I didn't mean to do that), and then there's "Select Cancel" (Select the items with problems so I can fix them and try again).

    So "Select Cancel" is just a poor choice of wording.

    Of course, TRWTF is that people assume Smalltalk is some crusty old dead language like COBOL, just because it's "Old". Not only is Smalltalk where most of todays Object Oriented languages got their ideas from, and had a better IDE in 1980 than most languages have today (in fact, Smalltalk-80 was a better environment than most OSes provided well into the 90s), but it's also still going strong, and used by hobbyists and the worlds largest companies alike. It's just not a fad language any more.
