  • Re: My Ruby has derailed

    [quote user="bstorer"][quote user="morbiuswilters"]They're both awful and Web SQL isn't even a standard any more, having been dropped by the W3C.[/quote]Which is how you know it was an utterly unredeemable piece of shit.

  • Re: Damn forced upgrade to Win7!

    [quote user="too_many_usernames"]4. Some of my customer-specific apps don't work on Win7 64 bit. Third party, not mine, I know, I know. (Best part? The app was written in .Net...)[/quote]If they're your apps (.EXEs), recompile for "x86" instead of "AnyCPU" and they will magically start working again.

  • Re: A pre-emptive "Fuck You" to Mozilla

    [quote user="Ben L."]What? What was IE 4's plugin API called? I can't find anything about it.[/quote] Although it also shared the Windows Explorer "shell extension" API too, because Microsoft was taking the position that a Web browser should be a computer browser as well.

  • Re: Terminal illness

    [quote user="Daniel Beardsmore"]What I should do over the Christmas break, when nobody's looking, is figure out why it's only getting one CPU core when it's been given four. That's the main reason why this problem became visible massive performance degradation.[/quote]Raymond Chen knows!

  • Re: More useless error messages

    [quote user="BC_Programmer"]I Don't understand what this has to do with Windows Error messages. It's a Knowledge Base article, not an Error Message, and the actual issue is a design feature.[/quote]Remember, Windows is the computer to most people, so when the computer starts singing songs, it's Windows' fault.

  • Re: DOMParser

    [quote user="spamcourt"]Mozilla created this mess, ignored it for ten years, and then refused to fix it because it would be "web-incompatible". Bonus points: WebKit doesn't even implement this correctly.[/quote]Double bonus points: The guy who said "invalid per spec" is the guy who writes the spec. And won't ...

  • Re: It's a good thing that Mozilla fixed all those Firefox memory leaks!

    [quote user="The_Assimilator"]While playing a videogame I noticed my system was a lot more sluggish than usual, so I exited and fired up Task Manager to be greeted by this "awesome" sight: Watefox 24.0, ~30 tabs open. As a comparison, Waterfox 18.0 routinely handled hundreds of tabs while never exceeding 4GB, at which point ...

  • Re: How to fuck up op_Equality

    [quote user="Ragnax"]Wow. Question; does the forum rule regarding the avoidance of work done in an educational setting also extend to the course material itself? If not; I wonder what other WTFs are hidden in that thing...[/quote] The forum rule only applies to student work product; instructors, as they most definitely should know ...

  • Re: Obamacare: TRWTF

    [quote user="The_Assimilator"]They implemented the ACA in Java? Suddenly the Republican shutdown of government makes a lot more sense.[/quote]They implemented the ACA website in ASP.NET, going through a Jekyll proxy. The Java stuff is for the authentication backend for Medicare and Medicaid, and now this.
