    "Frist, no error occurred" , on the Boston one - in the center of the earth, Easterly and Northerly coordinates take on gigantic proportions.

    The missing headline had joined at first but then saw what kind of junkie headlines surround it and bailed out.

    Steve M is confused. The popup says, no error occurred. Why does he ask if it's 1 or 2? Also, he should know that software created by Microsoft, including but not limited to Windows, never has errors.

    Isn't it about time to reduce the frequency of these posts? Perhaps save them up until you have at least one or two that are out of the ordinary? I see stuff this weird - which is not very - at least every hour or so of web use.

    Make sense that if you reviewed a Pi that you might be be able to answer a question about the new Apple Mac Sera

    I swear that people open their browser inspector and edit the DOM (or the desktop debugger equivalent) for most of these.

    For some reason there's a confused listing for mascara that says it's a raspberry pi. A mazon linking it to other raspberry pi listings is perfectly reasonable.

    I'd always heard Boston was a kind of hole, but not a literal hole.

    MacOS X Sera is outdated. You need to upgrade to Mac High Sera.

    99 little bugs in the code, 99 little bugs, you take one down, patch it around,

    127 little bugs in the code!

    Not a literal hole, but a Mass-hole. Also, given location, maybe a litoral hole.

    When a headline goes missing, do they send out a Yellow (Journalism) Alert?

    @LCrawford: -32767 feet (about 6 miles) is not the center of the Earth. It's not even the depth of the deepest sea bottom.

    It looks like the data had not been input, and the printf or similar function used to display the latitude and longitude failed to recognize floating point NaN or out-of-range and suppress the display. The integer is a little more interesting; if they just used the most negative 16-bit integer for a null value, it would be -32768 (0x8000) on nearly all modern CPU's. Instead, it's 0x8001. (Mount Everest is just under 30,000 feet, so 16 bits covers everywhere accessible to humans without a bathyscaphe.)

    I have a strong feeling that Nicole mistook the Raspberry Pi for macsera (sic). Couldn't understand the jibberish people wrote about it and decided her best option was to ask a direct question.

    As for the video card/oven one, I am reminded of the old Amiga-based 'Video Toaster'.

    Actually, Amazon's AI was far more intelligent than Dave can imagine. It knew that Nicole is looking for a boy-friend with some technical knowledge. It also knew that Dave is lacking a girl-friend. So, here was a good chance to get those two people together. But Dave failed. And complains about Amazon's AI.

  • Dave (unregistered) in reply to BernieTheBernie

    I didn't complain about Amazon's ai, I defended it. Because actually, I am it.

    Hah, fooled the Captcha again...

    I thought Brexit was missing a lot more than a headline...
