    Half a million euros per square metre is less bizarre than the idea of selling wine in units of area...

    Re: The Oracle "no password change for you". Maybe a misguided attempt at not alllowing hackers who guessed your password to change it ? Of course there are far better solutions to that issue.

    They couldn't come up with the correct title for the exam because they were still stumped at that first horrifying run-on sentence.

    By comparing to the unit price, we see there is 1 wine per cm².

    @ Steve & Simon:

    Obviously meters cubed is volume. So at 52 Euros the liter, a cubic meter of the grappa would be correctly priced at 52 thousand Euros. The fact they's showing meters squared at 10x that price says what they really are selling is measured in meters^4.

    Yes folks, it's truly 4-dimensional wine mislabeled as the inferior 2-dimensional stuff!

    Accept no substitutes. Always insist on 4-dimensional grappa. And here we thought it was only the more advanced recreational substances that could make you see god(s), extra dimensions, and the whole Universe at once.

    The problem with the water dispenser must be endemic. I've seen more than one of these myself. Shoddy hardware? Do we need to expand the scope of this website to include "curious perversions in electronic hardware design"?

    Yeah the spallchicker should have suggested "beautyful" .

    I've run into this myself - the system wouldn't let you change passwords that were set within the last week. I think it was an attempt to prevent password thrashing to get around the "must not have been used in the last N passwords" restriction.

    Not justifying it, just noting...

  • (nodebb) in reply to Mr Bits

    Yeah, I saw that same or similar error on one this week. Thought about sending it in, now I see it would've been redundant.

  • SFAN (unregistered) in reply to WTFguy

    Or you just do the math and consider that we are talking about a bottle containing 100ml. 520€ per liter might be a bit expensive but there is Marolo Grappa out there for 2500€ a liter. The only WTF is using cubic meters instead of liters for the reference price

    Error. The WTF is using square metres instead of any unit of volume.

    Nah, it should have suggested "brillantful".

    The real problem with the Oracle "no password change for you" one, which the editors cut out of the submission, is that this is on a forced password change page. See the highlighted part of the URL?

    So the flow goes like this: Log in with current credentials, get told you have to change your password, get shunted to the password change page, try to change your password, get told you aren't allowed to change your password. No login for you today!
