    I'm not sure if 374304452611 USD will be enough for me

    Verizon seem to have made an attempt to round to the nearest thousandth of a gigabyte, then get screwed by floating point errors. Better to do rounding and output formatting at the same time, maybe.

    TRWTF is "stock up on scarves", because, as we all know, they are perishable, and any left unused at the end of winter should be discarded because they go rotten in the hot weather.

    What are they sorry about in the Visual Studio one? Couldn't launch? The message at the bottom says Installation Successful.

    Nonsense, everyone knows that the new standard is to meter by the microbit. Even single bits are far too coarse to make real money with.

    An escalator can never break: it can only become stairs. You should never see an Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order sign, just Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience. We apologize for the fact that you can still get up there.


    One of Osaka's best-known jokes, too.

    That's what they should be sorry about.

    Big up for the PC-shaped "Sad Mac" ersatz, complete with unbelievably obsolete 5.25' floppy slot.

    Here they usually rip up some panels in the escalator and leave it open while they work elsewhere so you can't actually use them as stairs.

    Now if you'd saved 42 it would have made more sense.

    so what exactly is 1/100000000 of a bit? and how did that phone download it?

  • Carl Witthoft (google) in reply to jerepp

    <quote>so what exactly is 1/100000000 of a bit?</quote> Well, it's based on quantum Dirac operators. Like, to get a boolean "not," in quantum space you need <psi|psi> , where 'psi' is "the square root of not." Then you just need to continue decomposing psi to about 2^20 quantum pairs. ( FWIW, "the square root of NOT" is an actual valid quantum computing operator.)

    really? you need to moderate a comment about Dirac notation quantum operators?

    Sadly, 374304452611 USD isn't even within striking distance of the National Debt.

    IIRC, there are multiple instances of escalator steps breaking and letting people fall through into the machinery.

    Finns were ahead of their time, their computer magazine “Mikrobitti” (“micro bit”, https://www.mikrobitti.fi) started back in 1984..

    Or if it's TFL, they turn it off, put a barrier across, and close it because someone, just might, in the next four weeks, be along to scrape a bit of chewing gum off some bit of it.

    You'd be both surprised and not surprised at the amount of quantum spam floating around these days.
