    That Indian web store is not user-friendly. Why do they format Rs. 33,955,32.09 as Rs. 3,395,532.09? And they are masters in currency rates: Rs. 507 equals $7.69, and $7.69 equals Rs. 522.25. Was that their frist try?

    11/9 is wrong for you, yeah? you think 9/11 was much better?

    What kind of clown gives their username as "IT"?

    For those too lazy to do the number-crunching themselves, that discount is within rounding error of "Spend $50,000 to save 1¢"...

    Yeah, that count of deployment components sure looked a little fishy to me....

    [object:Object] fees are fees that programmers get for over-abstracting classes.

    I love that the rendering broke that spectacularly.

    I was about to write something about It, but I don't think I can beat your comment. Bravo.

    TRWTF is starting at 1 ✭. Why did 0 ⁑ ever stop being an option?

    It's not at all surprising to see a fishy graph in a SalesForce screenshot, given SF's general level of WTFery.

    They probably get a star just for signing up. Must've been slim pickings for that to be posted along with two JavaScript templating timeouts.

    @BernieTheBernie: according to my understanding of Indian numeric convention, the formatting should be 33,95,532.09.

    Most likely the round trip currency conversion discrepancy includes an exchange fee. i.e. you can pay directly in Rs. and it costs 507, or you can pay in dollars with an additional fee of Rs. 15.25.

    Pretty spooky in fact. The way they render the circular gauge was also affected by the inversion. Somebody set up us the bomb!

    Maybe they're just trying to virtue signal being born-again Christians by showing the "bumper fish". (that name is because of all the people who put them where bumper stickers go)

    It's probably for the better that TDWTF doesn't attract more traffic than it did when I first started reading in 2005. The moderation queue is backed up for a week on the fraction of barely a hundred comments that it catches.
