    So the serial number is frist, two, three, four? That's the stupidest serial number I've ever heard in my life! That's the kinda thing an idiot would have on his device!

    I wonder if Franz tested any other possible responses. "Fuck you" comes to mind.

    Ah the joys of signed and unsigned ints - it's only a bit confusing.

    Nobody has commented on the Pascal's Wager wordplay yet?

    I would never use 1234 as a serial number - if I did, I'd confuse it with my luggage lock combo

    Franz didn't follow directions it said

    That's a Rookie progress bar! I've seen an update progressbar which extended past 100% and also past the edge of the containing window, and then my monitor.

    TRWTF is Garmin's update process. It typically announces that an update will take several hours and you think, "Well, it might have done in the days of acoustic modems, but not now surely?" And then it does.

    I figure it would take 10 picopence to get Bob's Trugreen's bill up to a round penny. Did I do that math correctly?

    Is that "0.01" just a "background" since it's grayed out (and thus he didn't actually enter anything but leave the fields blank, hence the error message), or actual entered text that's gray because someone doesn't like contrast? Not often that you see two of the most horrible trends in UI combining to give even more confusion.

    When I get a survey by SMS or IVR I always choose a digit not on the menu, hoping it was coded by an idiot and something will break.

    1.5MB for a profile picture that you then render at 180px wide is a bit of wtf no?
