    Just curious as to why my comments are always held for moderation. Here's one with a spoofed user agent string

    At least, it is not a Linux kernel crash, from the error message i would say an installation problem.

    It looks like it's running '/bin/isamchk', so it's probably MySQL, but the database files - *.ISM , *.ISD - are missing. I'd bet a filesystem didn't get mounted correctly.

    Perhaps you have not met my niece: little Fay FILE_NOT_FOUND the EXTRA SEAT.

  • Ken (unregistered)

    Seriously though, for those not aware, "EXTRA SEAT" is what you're supposed to select if you are a grossly obese passenger and need to purchase two seats.

    TRWTFs are thinking people will at most have two first names (one of them called “middle name” for some reason), and length restrictions on names.

    'TZ wrote, "Looks like somebody at Microsoft doesn't like static web pages!"'

    What makes you think that's a Microsoft template? It doesn't show up in my stock Visual Studio 2017 15.6.2 install. I have 7 options for ASP.NET Core 2.0:

    • Empty
    • API
    • Web Application
    • Web Application (Model-View-Controller)
    • Angular
    • React.js
    • React.js and Redux

    Robin Lee, at least you're in good company. Bob Ross, Elijah Wood, Larry King, Helen Hunt, Paul Ryan, Nathan Lane, and Jonah Hill can't sign up either.

    My own family name only has four letters. And so does my wife's maiden name.

    I can see "Lee" is the 25th most common surname in the UK. There's dozens of common three and four letter surnames. And I know of a few two letter names too.

    HTF is five letters a reasonable minimum?

    The EXTRA SEAT hack is inelegant, but simple and workable. Suppose Mr. Yo-yo Maaaa is traveling with his cello and doesn't trust WWF airlines to handle it gently. He can purchase a second seat for the instrument and this will keep the passenger manifest clean, instead of making up a name like Petunia Montagnana.

    So, what you're saying is that they really don't like static web pages.

    Why would anybody write a static page in ASP.NET Core?

    The mods started getting a bit wary a few months back when a user started spamming swinging dick pics.

    The "extra seat" hack is for probably for security. Every ticket issued has to have a passenger assigned (because they check passenger manifests against no fly lists, etc), and every passenger has to have their identity verified when boarding the plane. If you need an extra seat for your violin/dog/rear, you can't just buy a second ticket under the same name - if you could, then two people could use the same ID to board the plane, hiding the identity of one of them. So you book as yourself but clearly identified as an extra seat, and you present both boarding passes. No one is allowed to board with just the Extra Seat pass, thus preventing unidentified or misidentified passengers. As @Moi Ociii said, it's a hack, but it obviously works, and does so without introducing a new field to the likely decades old airline ticketing, passenger manifest and boarding systems.

    Actually, it looks like one of those micro-service-async-dependency calls they're stuffing Visual Studio with these days just timed out and printed the default. God forbid they do something pedestrian like read values from a local configuration and construct the form before rendering. Nope, hipsters have to dial the mothership, spin off a hundred threads, and show some bloated MVC template lurching all over the place.
