PARADE!! (continued) (in a new thread because the Monty Hall problem is boring once you've figured it out)



  • So my previous post on the parade has turned into a Monty Hall problem discussion (WTF 1), I thought I'd revisit why exactly the Macy's parade website was b0rked (WTF 0), because it's interesting. See, in addition to the N bands/floats/baloons etc, each category has two extra broken thumbnail images. If you click on the thumbnails and inspect the URLs, you see things like the following:

    • http://social.macys.com/parade/?cm_mmc=VanityUrl-_-parade-_-n-_-n#/lineup/bands/1
    • http://social.macys.com/parade/?cm_mmc=VanityUrl-_-parade-_-n-_-n#/lineup/bands/2
    • ...
    • http://social.macys.com/parade/?cm_mmc=VanityUrl-_-parade-_-n-_-n#/lineup/bands/11
    • http://social.macys.com/parade/?cm_mmc=VanityUrl-_-parade-_-n-_-n#/lineup/bands/unique
    • http://social.macys.com/parade/?cm_mmc=VanityUrl-_-parade-_-n-_-n#/lineup/bands/remove

    Someone has been using a Javascript for (x in object) loop to walk the object, except some javascript plugin has added methods unique and remove to their arrays, resulting in two nonsense fields being added to the page. An easy mistake to make, but, nice QA job on that, guys (WTF -1). Anyway. That's JavaScript for you! (WTF undefined. or is it null? i keep getting those mixed up in JavaScript.)

    The real explanation bethind NaN baloons, however, is because they're likely to cancel the balloons this year for safety reasons (due to the 30 mph+ wind gusts which are forecast). And obviously 0 bicycles is because no one would bike in the cold, rainy weather! Happy hanukah.



  •  In soviet russia, original topic is split to new thread.



  • The chances of getting interesting discussion after switching threads are clearly 2/3.

    Well it's clearly not 0.9...

    You should write that as 0.999..., because UTF8 doesn't work.

    I'm sorry for what I did.

    For those who don't know, that means roughly

    0.99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999

    Give or take a few infinitesimals, but that should be accurate enough to solve any issue without shortcuts.

    You should write that as 0.999..., because UTF8 doesn't work.

    It wasn't UTF8, it was CSS.



  • I tried to post this yesterday but of course the forum ate my post. I think that TDWTF123 meant that even if you can choose any door the host can only choose a door with a goat so your choice is limited to the door you picked and whatever other door the host didn't pick. Make your own conclusions about this.

    Given only one of the 15 messages so far (the original one) has been anything to do with that, it's a bit much to claim that's what this thread's about...

    Neither did the little word bubble icons on the quotes, but I don't hear you complaining that gmail broke those. Or was it the forum's e-mailer that did? If you must know, it deleted one of the CSS rules that I used to position everything correctly.

    Neither. Google [Mixed Content Blocking] sometime.@anotherusername said:

    Which one?

    margin-right:-1em;

    That CSS rule is included if you view the original text of the e-mail with its headers and decode the base-64 body of the message. It's not found in the DOM source when the e-mail is displayed, so apparently gmail doesn't allow it. Not too surprising, I guess.

    It doesn't appear to allow the display:none rule either, incidentally. <!-- too bad HTML comments aren't allowed by the forum -->



  • Your chances of this thread still not discussing the original WTF are 100%.



  • Having just flipped a coin to decide, I agree with you.
