    that should encourage you to find out more, maybe you will find Antarctica, not only New Zealand

    Of course the flights are expensive - they're via Reykjavik so they're round trips, and Reykjavik is far from undefined....

    Obviously it's updating from Windows 7 to Windows, 10, duh.

    But why would you fly from NZ to NZ via Iceland?

    Drew should consider taking advantage of IcelandAir's layover policy and see some of the country while going from undefined to undefined, though.

    As for Peter, "...but it goes to 11..."

    "Updates 10 of 7...." More than likely the ellipses is from a small monitor compressing the string down from 7X updates. This one isn't even an error, just coincidental formatting.

    That would mean MIcrosoft felt the need to shorten a string despite acres of space, which would be TRWTF.

    I like websites about fails, and maps omitting countries is hilarious. Even more hilarious is the 404 page of www.govt.nz - but I'm thinking it might be on purpose, being a "Not Found" page.

    I understand paying for a plane from NaN to NaN (after all, NaN != NaN). But undefined to undefined?!

    This is an awfully long hiatus between posts. I hope authors are ok.

    There is no Celebes on the map, no one bats an eye, and it has greater area than any of the New Zealand's islands.

    Diacritics strike again! Obviously that site never actually tested any non-English airport names.

    Nope, not due to a small monitor - just a weird Windows Update bug in 8.1: https://eternallybored.org/imgs/misc/winupdate.png https://eternallybored.org/imgs/misc/winupdate2.png
