    The vulnerability is public, why did you redact it?

    "Well, it's now after 21::0 am so can I post this?" After all, it's 21:1 am somewhere.

    Don't you mean "persnickety"? Geez, get a spell-checker already.

    You reminded me of this joke I read on LWN:

    "A pedant walks into a bar. Well, it's a restaurant with a bar. Technically it's a brewpub since it has an onsite microbrewery. (also, it's different in various languages.)"

    According to Google Translate, the Danish text in the Angular book says roughly this:

    This book is not yet published. According to our information, they are expected Apr 2016. However, we draw attention to the fact that smears can occur.

    (Some of the letters were obscured by the orange highlight so I took a guess at what they might have been. I might have gotten them wrong and don't speak a word of Danish, so take that caveat plus the usual Google Translate caveat.)

    The USPS one is amusing, but not for the reasons given.

    For those in other countries, a "Blue Box" is a steel box placed on the street where people can deposit mail for later pickup.

    Although they should have well-defined pick-up times, there are no "hours". Calling their hours "undefined" sounds fine to me. The weird part is that they say it is "closed" on Sunday. Although the boxes can be locked shut, they don't do that unless they are preparing to remove it from the location or otherwise take it out of service.

    I reviewed the link. It looks like somebody cleaned it up when taking it to the Analyzing phase.

    I think Dick's is just being more advanced - their stores are closed, but their online store is open so hit them at at that IPv6 address.

  • Traditionalway (unregistered) in reply to Worf

    Yes, I understand they are open from some IPv4 time until some (same) IPv6 time of day. But how can I know what's the time while I enter the store, and according to which version, when I wear an analog watch??

    Looks like the USPS one has been fixed, or it only happens occasionally.

    https://tools.usps.com/find-location.htm Find a Location: 80247 Location Types: Collection Boxes Within: 10 Miles

    and zoom in a bit. Look for the lake just to the north west.

  • Mobeer (unregistered) in reply to David Charlap

    UPS one looks like there is an option for opening hours of some collection place types but these do not apply to Blue Boxes - hence "undefined". Then the times could be collection times? That would mean the correct data exists but is being displayed wrongly.
