    A "diet cock" is sure to "short" change you.

    The t-shirt size might be baby sizes, 01-S being for a small 1 month old baby.

    I've seen that Outlook one myself. Outlook 2016.

    19 characters. How many bytes is that? Maybe the limit on the backend is really 30 bytes.

    Hah! That reminds me of when I worked at BlackBerry. All of my texts would show up blank on certain family members phones.

    Somehow I wound up with a European version of the phone I was working on. It defaulted to UCS2 encoding on the texts and other North American phones assumed everything would be in ASCII.

    The Outlook issue is actually related to having Apple iCloud installed, so TRWTF here is iCloud for Windows :(

    Annnd here's your weather Outlook for today: partly iCloudy with a strong chance of 4 below numeric_limits double::digits10. Stay with us throughout the day for mandatory updates.

    The t-shirt one is probably abusing the size field for a combination of style and size.

    Is the joke missing the word "ring" after cock? I'm more surprised you can get any sex toy for $1.09.

    Password parsing online just sucks. A quasi-WTF from my bank's online facility - the Android app is protected only by a password, so mine was 17 characters mixed for a little security. Then they updated the app two months ago, which after installation refused my login - "The password is maximum 13 characters". Why? Why? Why? Solution - use another undocumented "feature". They only allow one mobile per account, so installing on a second invalidates the first and allows a new, somewhat less secure password to be chosen.

    Diane B. seems to need some lessons from the ministry of truth. Big Brother say $2.00 - $1.09 make $0.83, so $2.00 - $1.09 do make $0.83.

    Why buy when you can rent? What are you really going to do with it when you're done?

  • PenguinF (unregistered) in reply to PoorUserMan

    The only reason I can think of is that the password is now a (VAR)CHAR(13) field.

    I assume Americans don't have the equivalent of our Pound stores, because everything would be 4 cents extra after sales tax...

  • I dunno LOL ¯\(°_o)/¯ (unregistered)

    Eight cents on a dollar-nine? Probably sales tax. Not surprised that wouldn't be shown on a display fucked up enough to show "Total $0.00". It seems that someone has finally perfected a cash register as dumb as the minimum wagers who use it.

    So does a "1 months" T-shirt only last a month? And why can't I get an 01-XXL size?

    There's a scroll bar on the PoS screen so the tax is there somewhere. This is just a UX WTF.

  • Diane B (unregistered)

    Hmm, just realized the missing 8 cents is sales tax. It's still a WTF though for not listing it.
