    So, did the draft post work for Dustin'?

    What's a "trial evaluation"? Is it where you try out an evaluation and then if it works out, you sign up for a real evaluation?

    Where's the WTF in the second one? They changed the price so people were informed. Another one for TheDailyGoodPractice.com

  • Darrick (unregistered) in reply to doubting_poster

    Because the price changed from 214.90 to 215. 10 cents more for 2-year membership. 0,04% difference. And this is most likely New Zealand Dollar, so it is 6 cents in practice.

    This is a good practice, sure, if your objective is to lose customers for no reason.

    The price went up by $0.10. Why bother?

    TRWTF is anyone new using Oracle products who wasn't already locked into them

    He missed the sale - it was $214.85 a month ago!

    I hope that sales receipt isn't a real site... Some poor dev is probably crying in a corner questioning his life choices that brought him to this point: managing a Magento store.

  • Reginald P. Smithington (unregistered) in reply to Scott

    Or news.

  • LoganDark (unregistered) in reply to doubting_poster

    That needs to be a real site.

  • sizer99 (google)

    TRWTF is that there is a product called 'Toad for Oracle'. I guess anything that involves dealing with Oracle is bound to be ugly, though.

    According to my handy-dandy fraction recoverer (a loop based on python's fractions.Fraction.limit_denominator):

    1.044 ≈ 24/23 ≈ 95/91 ≈ 166/159 ≈ 261/250

    the last of which is "exact" to the precision given, but using so few sigfigs to start with means that's not very meaningful.

    I find the first output most likely, that the progress went only one step too far. Checking 25/24 and 23/22 show that they would round differently.

  • o11c (unregistered) in reply to o11c

    Wait, oops, it was 104.04%, not 104.4% ...

    1.0404 ≈ 26/25 ≈ 103/99 ≈ 2601/2500

    but the first of those wouldn't round like that, and the second would be four steps past. That's odd ...

  • asdfse (unregistered) in reply to o11c

    Use Wolfram Alpha for that. It finds your fraction as well as other expressions that are close to it, like 1.040 ~= pi * exp(-1 + e + 1/pi - pi).

  • reCAPTCHA Robot (unregistered) in reply to doubting_poster

    Exactly. Many of the same people would get angry if the monthly prices go up by that tiny bit without informing anybody.

    It's all squirrel-powered. Hence, the contents of the email.
