    But 99.99999...% = 100%, doesn't it? Just like .9999999... = 1? See, there's this mathematical proof... [ducks, runs]

    99.99999...% would be 100%, yes, but in the image we have a mere 14 9's right of the decimal, which is slightly less than infinite.

    What I'm seeing here is the Zeno's Motion progress bar. The application hasn't got a clue how far it has to go to finish. So at the end of a modest time interval (few seconds), it puts up a progress bar saying "50% done". Then a few seconds later, it moves to half the remainder. and says "75% done". And so on, each time moving a fraction (half if you can, or just increment the number of nines if it's starting to get tight) and hope the user is not going to catch on that it really does not know how damn long it's got.

    Similar technique when you're ringing a taxi to find out why it's late, and every time you do, he says, "Just another few minutes" -- when you finally catch on that he's not really on his way, half an hour to an hour has gone and by this time it's too late to ring around to find another cab.

    The last time a cab did that to me, I rang another company, to have the cab I'd originally rung turn up just as I'd got in the second cab. I have used the second firm ever since, with no complaints.

    Incidentally, now is Mom going to eat her special Momsday breakfast-in-bed cereal? With her coffee-spoon?

    Comparing the tray's given dimensions its picture, I'm more interested in where they got all those tiny plates and miniature food items. I'd also like to know how they got the coffee pot to stay upright, when half its base is clearly on the angled tray siding.

    Rectangular tray in round hole or vice versa?

    "Tray measures approximately 18.10L x 12.4W x 1.95H inches."

    Then, in next bullet: "Dimension 13 inches in diameter...".

    The 6th feature of the tray must have been erroneously copied from another item. It sounds like a smaller version of the rotating wooden stand in the middle of my dining room table - it's good for putting things like butter and salt within reach of everyone, but it tilts and the bearing binds if it's loaded with too much unbalanced weight.

    "The last time a cab did that to me, I rang another company, to have the cab I'd originally rung turn up just as I'd got in the second cab." Whoa, Grandpa Tables, we have this app called "Tuber" now where you make a request on your smartphone and a potatoe shows up to give you a ride.

    What's the emojipedia thing about?

  • (nodebb) in reply to CoyneTheDup

    There was a recent server upgrade which caused this weirdness apparently for everyone with nodebb accounts, but it's just a one-off, fortunately.

    Hey, I'd take the Kindle edition of the SD card. I'm down to 770MB free on mine, so I could use some extra storage space in the near future.
