    TRWTF is "null" is a boy's name. What weirdo goes out with a girl called "null"?

    Hang on, what weirdo goes out with girls?

    If filename.contains(obscenity) return 'This should not happen #2'

    wondering what #1 would be :)

    The HelpPoint is reporting that the Driver is Corrupt. Does that mean the operator of the next train has been bribed?

  • Nutster (nodebb)

    It is nice to see that they provided a work-around for the HelpPoint in case the kiosk stopped working. I wonder how many times and how frequently the HelpPoint kiosks had to fail before they printed out the stickers to apply to them. So which number do I call for technical support?

    These spambots are getting too good now, I actually stopped to read both of them before I realised that they were spambots.

    The comment spam here is getting interesting. For example, was the dissertation spam message generated by a Markov chain, or was it actually written by someone with no sense of grammar? Either way, I love how a comment trying to sell PhD writing help is a big long confusing run-on sentence.

    This Should not Happen #1 is just a drunk guy in the urinals...

    though I thought This Should not Happen #2 often happened after eating at Taco Bell

    Worth noting: Later on, while working on the same project, GameMaker:Studio suddenly decided to pop up "Cannot focus disabled or invisible window," ignore all user input, and corrupt my project file. It was so bad I had to restart in GameMaker 8, which is so far working without any major issues. You know things are bad when an older version of a program is more usable than the newest version...

    This happens when the upgrade introduces bugs. Usually alongside new features, or when a bugfix is flawed....as so often happens.

    GameMaker and RPGMaker are both so incredibly bad, both buggy and incredibly limited, that it's a testament to the sheer drive of some creators that so many excellent games have been made in them. My hat's off to those people, because I loathed every minute of it and went back to Unity.

    I just wish there were ways to patch games made in older engine versions, because a 640x480 fixed resolution isn't going to fly on my 4K monitor.

    Catch errors before users do 🎣 sooner or later one of them will and you want to be prepared.

    It's been about a dozen years since I was a regular rail traveller, but in those days Windows BSODs were very common in UK rail stations - automatic ticket machines were the most frequent target, followed by arrival/departure boards.
