    Come on, that cute little system error on the Yamaha is no WTF. It's written in proper English, no spelling errors and it's quite friendly. The little penguin thingy is not exactly necessary but hardly makes it a WTF. It's not like it's the first time that someone has come up with a pointless little cutesy penguin logo for their software.

    Cool! Where did you find a compiler that detected infinite loops? Is there a warning flag you can turn on for C?

    The Yamaha one makes sense to me, too. Cubase used to (and possibly still does) throw an error if you tried to adjust a track while the song was playing: a dialog box saying "Not while you play the song, please", with a single button marked "Ah."

    Personally, I don't see the resemblence...

    By the way - how long is it between the submission of an Error'd picture and it showing up on TDWTF? I'm just wondering how long should I wait before I can presume that I didn't make it?

    Sometimes it takes months so don't expect a quick turnaround if your submission was recent.

    Where's the WTF? That looks like a regular ol' Manssiere to me. Quite stylish, I'd say.

  • gorcee (unregistered)

    Perhaps these forums are too nerdy and don't understand the world of the wimmin-types...?

    The tag is correct. Menswear doesn't refer to things men wear. It's a style of women's clothes that are tailored with patterns/fabric that are typically used in men's suits/clothes.

    The bra is menswear because of the business-suit pinstripe styling.

    I don't make up the rules, I just poke my head outside every once in a while to see what the world is up to.

  • riweuh (unregistered)

    TRWTF are all the other system error messages that insist on being OK'd. No, it's not OK! "Oh, I see" is actually the most appropriate thing to respond as long as we don't want to offend the penguin.

    I recognize that fuzzy undecipherable report. This happens at our company when adobe acrobat reader goes rogue on a iTEXT generated PDF. Strangely, the document is readable on screen, only the print version is in such state. Only solution we found out is ask user to ...reprint..... and that's enough!

    We get that sometimes when printing a PDF to a Kyocera printer using Acrobat. The report's ok on screen. The solution is to reboot the PC and the printer, or use a different PDF reader.

    Decoding the text at the bottom starts off with:

    Those look like feminine fingers holding the tag. Although this field is still male dominated I think there must be SOME female readers of theDailyWTF.

    I took the picture, glad it finally made it to the front page for you all to see. I didn't really look around to see if anyone was looking when I took the picture - the undergarments section is kind of in a corner by itself at the Forever 21 in the King of Prussia mall.

    Also, my wife thought it was hilarious that I submitted this!

    The first picture is mine and I submitted it Oct. 10th, if that gives you some idea.

    It is not really uncommon to see labels like that - as someone said, it's sometimes related to the style or material - like the classic "boy short" which is not for boys. What is weird is that Forever 21 has codes for menswear - I don't think they carry any of that. Not that I would know - I'm too old to shop there :)

    I submitted one back in September, of my cell phone showing two different times. (Like 11:29 and 11:30) Guess that wasn't F'd enough.

    An Error Occured Not sure what it was, or why it keeps happening. Again and again.

    Yeah, this always fascinated me. You see ads all the time for "menswear inpired" fashions for women. Someone else mentioned "boy shorts." That's the same sort of thing.

    Question for the men here... Would any of you (well, us, really) buy clothing that was advertised as "inspired by women's fashsions?"
