    Hamilton? Halifax!

    So do you pay for that trip to Hamilton with $10 bills?

    For some reason, after reading that article, I have this image of Vikings singing in a diner, and I can't get the song out of my head.

    TRWTF is a property called ActualValueFromSolar, when the back-end engine they're using is (almost certainly) Solr, without an “a”.

    Someone's a fan of the musical, perhaps?

    TRealer™WTF is a search engine software trying to sound edgy by dropping a vowel.

    ... and TRealestWTF is they really do it because search engines can't find them if they use a real word.

    Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton. Just Hamilton.

    Obviously, it's a package intended for Unka Ghastly!

    It has more to do with trademark laws.

    I'm pretty sure the visual studio error duplication was because of extensions.. not a real WTF, just several checks from different implementations.

    A world where everywhere is Hamilton. The stuff nightmares are made of.

    TRWTF is a property called ActualValueFromSolar

    That is still a WTF. WHat if they switch to some other back end database, they now have to change the method name. Never leak out the implementation just make it generic, ActualValueFromData would be so much better as it will no longer imply the technology behind the scenes.

    Y'know, I'd almost prefer Visual Studio reports my errors three different ways. Some of the errors are worded in a way that makes them incomprehensible, so having two other wordings would be a blessing. Plus, when debugging syntax errors, I'd be 3x as efficient by default!

    To be fair, I've lived in 4 states and each one did have a town named Hamilton.

    I wrote a short function. Apparently it was a bad day because I had a few minor glitches. I won't name the language because no one here knows it anyway, but here is the function template:


    The words "move", "from", "to", and "length" were all language reserved words. You want to talk about a confused compiler...37 errors on a 7 line function... 13 errors on just that first line.

    Is this caused by a hamiltonian cycle?

  • What? I'm not giving you my name. (unregistered) in reply to CoyneTheDup

    It could be worst! Just imagine that the words "integer", "function", "byte", "pointer", and "begin" were also reserved words. That would be hell.

    ActualValueFromSolar is really just a dog whistle for climate deniers to apply.

    Would be nice to see what Hamilton, Hamilton, Hamilton resolves for a different ZIP code. AVS FTW!
