    My interest in canned lobster color is indeed "None".

    I've got to ask: What kind of issue would cause every sequence of vowels in a message to be replaced by that same sequence of vowels repeated twice, separated by a P, and with diacritics applied?

    I looked up that ISBN number. So he looked for "Fundamentals of Internet of Things for Non-Engineers" and the closest it could find was a 1922 pamphlet on the discoloration of canned lobsters. What a search engine!

    Who needs premium features when the free version can process more files than I even have?

    FWIW the Edge installer looks like it is the pseudo-localized version which is an ahem internal build that Microsoft uses to check that UI elements will work with translated text that is longer than the English original.

    When you find yourself reading a dissertation on canned lobsters from 1920 instead of working, you know it's Friday.

    Those are URL escape codes, not HTML.

    %20 is a space. %25 is a %. So %2520 is a space which has been URL-encoded twice.

    Why they've URL-encoded it four times before outputting it in an HTML context is anyone's guess.

    @Richard When you get a couple levels of web services involved and maybe an XML payload mixed in with a JSON or two, each of which have different escaping mechanisms, it's real easy to have too many (or too few) escapings.

    Add in some "security best practice" cut-and-paste coding and the WTFs just keep on coming.

    That Chromium installer UI makes me think of faked localization testing resources.

    You create localized resources for real target languages that use oddball characters to be identifiable as "foreign language text" when displayed, but are still readable in the the tester's own language so they can tell whether the correct message is being displayed, check layout and formatting, RTL/LTR, etc.

    Then in production you sub in the real resource file(s). Unless you forget that step.

    I'm wondering if the fuzzy search rules noticed the 0s in the ISBN and also included the related string "none" as part of the valid set of results.

    Not sure why "None None None..." was in those descriptions, but whatever...

    Wait, "Chromium Edge"? What...?

    The lobster book is obviously a very thourough description of a lobster discolouration research job.

    It tells you it found six lobsters without discolouration, then two with normal discolouration, nine more with discolouration: none, and, finally, again one with a normal discolouration.

    And probably a lot more research results, telling from the ellipsis and the 'See all results' hint.

    Could be a regexp. You have a problem, you use a regexp to solve it, now you have 26 problems.

    Yes crabs can be used in many places where crabs are not found where we live, but we are looking for more information about this animal how we can use crabs in practice. This company is looking for this !!!
