Numerous persons have, I am sure, by now found out about the Bloompberg 404 page. However, I have found a new one of Microsoft’s, shown below:
I was bored and my PC could use a cleaning, I determined to “reset” Windows. This is something new in Windows 8 that was carried over to Windows 10 (unlike the “refresh” option) that essentially reinstalls Windows in place without having to boot from install media.
I have noticed two minor issues with the current WordPress post writing interface:
- Unlike previously, when you start adding the post to categories, the default “Uncategorized” is not removed. You now have to do that manually. I think this is a regression.
- After entering some tags for the post, if you move the cursor to any other field and start typing, the tags field steals the focus back. This usually happens in the middle of typing, leading to stupid looking and unwanted tags.
Anyone else have these, or is it just me and my browser/blog?
If this is more than just me I will find out how to post a bug about them.
For some really bad animated chartjunk, I’ve found the Guatemalan Election Court’s page for the results of its current (2015) elections to be the worst ever™. Go to their website and click “Resultados”. I defy you to not be put out by their misuse of animation.
Further, their bar graphs (scroll down) have a spurious third dimension.
Finally, when you click “Descargar Resultos” (download results) on the right column, you get an image of an error message (!).
I think whoever gave the Election Court this probably so-called “turnkey” system didn’t do as well as they might have for their client and/or country.
Update (October 24, 2015): they changed their site and I cannot find the results page with the bad graphics anymore.
Update (November 18, 2015): the site is offline, except for a hosted backup.
To my complete surprize one day, I discovered that Excel does matrixes and matrix functions, even if they call them arrays.
This alone is noteworthy, however, one thing kept occurring and it was soon aggravating.
In metricating, frequently you will end up finding mistakes in the non-metric text that deserve to be corrected. Here is one I found in a textbook I have been working on steadily:
While looking something up in an appendix of a textbook on engineering, I found this table. See if you can find the odd ones out.
