    Burger buns, hot dog buns, they're both as useful as each other for the only thing they're really good at, and that is mopping up the blood from the fingers you cut in the kitchen while attempting to work out the best way to hold the knife. Eating? Goodness no.

    The Steam screenshot is not a WTF. Steam just honestly warns, that the 'Trinelogy' bundle is not a good deal, as it is not currently on the sale, while each individual game in the bundle is and buying those separately will be much cheaper.

    Whoa, I don't think I've ever seen an SD card that small. The smallest flash drive I ever had was 512MB.

  • LCrawford (unregistered) in reply to Nicholas "LB" Braden

    I still have a 16MB card - one of the last with a hardware write lock.

    You missed the good old days of Sony Mavica cameras with 1.44MB floppy diks and astonishing 0.3MP. OK, maybe not that good... =D

    The Steam one is just a side-effect of how fast the £ dropped against the $ after the Leave vote.

    TRWTF is how hot dogs are sold in packs of ten, but hot dog buns are sold in packs of eight, amirite?

    Was the email address removed in the original email sent to Simon? That's the only way I can see that being a wtf, but it's not at all clear if that was something tdwtf did or not. I guess I'm just used to postings here coming with redacted information.

    The real Steam error is that the bundle price is actually in British pounds.

  • _that_guy_ (unregistered) in reply to foxyshadis

    I think the email address was actually missing from the email Simon received, hence the submission.

    I still have the 32MB memory card that came with my PSP, which was barely big enough to just use for saves, let alone actually downloading any games.

    Burger dogs? Does this mean that cows bark? Maybe the other way around is when dogs moo?

    Inquiring minds need to know.

    I'm just trying to understand how the Two Castles Run people are formatting their numbers in order to end up with "-1-1" days and "3-" hours...?

  • Ditto (unregistered)

    That password is too short, obviously not enough characters .. try:


    there, that one is 8 Characters :P

    disclaimer: Not my actual password, I changed 2 characters to hide my password HAH! :)

  • Ditto (unregistered) in reply to jkshapiro

    Just a string: They have: -1 day, -13 hours, and -23 minutes.

    into a string: "-1-13-23" .. then dumped "blindly" into the fields. O.o

  • MyName (unregistered) in reply to I dunno LOL ¯\(°_o)/¯

    You are wrong. Here dogs are sold in either eight or ten packs and buns are sold in packs of twelve.

  • (nodebb)

    The Steam sale is clever. They know the customer can't do math...they play games all day.

  • Worf (unregistered) in reply to Anderson Pimentel

    Actually, the Mavicas were great cameras back in the day - a 10 pack of floppies cost around $10, whereas a 16MB memory card would cost around $100. And the floppies could be removed and put into your PC immediately, while the memory card needed a card reader or you used your serial/parallel port to transfer images using the camera. (You were lucky if your PC and the camera had USB, and it worked).

    These days its an anachronism, but when memory cards were several hundred bucks each and using them was a pain, well, a floppy disk was cheap, easy to use and worked everywhere. You didn't need to wait half an hour to transfer your photo, you just popped the disk out, insert it into your PC and then viewed it immediately.

    Of course, after the year 2000, the floppy disks were too small and the camera limited by it, but by then memory cards were a bit cheaper and Sony tried to make a go at it by using CD-Rs. But for a few years, they were the best way to do digital photography.

    At least the quantities are not coprime.

    The hamburger bun label says 6-count but the number of hot dog buns is 8.

    TRWTF is that the reCAPTCHA test was backwards. If the store accepted employees whose test result is "I AM a robot", maybe the correct label would get stuck on the package.

  • (nodebb)

    The Steam thing is just something stupid because it's an old-style bundle instead of a new-style bundle.

    The old-style bundles have a fixed price... and as someone else already commented, the bundle isn't on sale.

    The new-style bundles have a percentage off the current prices of the items in it and are also smart enough to remove items you already own from the price.

    Addendum 2016-06-25 03:55: On a side note, it appears that the old-style Trineology bundle was removed and the new one is on the store now.

    Those buns are probably for Discordians, who are prohibited by their religion from eating hot dog buns...but it's perfectly fine for them to eat hot dogs in hamburger buns that are shaped like hot dog buns.

  • Tillie (unregistered)

    "Till" or "until". There is no "til".

  • Discouraged (unregistered) in reply to Tillie

    @tillie There is "til" - just needs an apostrophe to be perfect 'til we abandon punctuation altogether.

    My first MP3 player had two SD card slots, and came with two SD cards of 16MB each for a whopping 32MB of musical goodness. Or, in other words, about forty minutes of music at an horrendously low quality.

    On the plus side, while all my friends were still struggling to fit their discmans into their oversized pants-pockets, I was happily running along with my tiny MP3 player that seemed to last forever on two AAA batteries.

    TIL - TIL is not valid.

    You do know that an SD card write lock doesn't really protect the card.


    You're dependent on the OS (or malware) playing nice.

    Anderson Pimentel, you mean like this?
