VS2005 says oranges != oranges



  • I'm about ready to give up on this one....

    (all the blacked out bits are exactly the same text)

    EDIT: I've just used xmllint to validate and got a similar error... it might just not be VS's fault... this time.  Still, wtf?!

  • Well it wouldn't be the end of the world!  In other news, it turns out elementFormDefault="qualified" is my new best friend.  TRWTF is of course XML itself.



  • No, TRWTF is how he was apparently searching for "ass" before the screenshot was taken.

    Lol, it took me a while to find that, but that's definitely TRWTF.

    It's that loving hand-crafted attention to even the tiniest details that makes for a truly great WTF!

    Also: sometimes I notice things like "ass" in my search box and I wonder, "when was I searching for ass?"

    But then I realize I was really searching for "assert" or something and "ass" was enough to find it.

     

    BTW I wasted a lot of time decoding "versatilia" without looking at your name.

    "'Utile'? No, doesn't fit. 'Versatile'? No. What the hell word is this?"

    /me r dum

     

    EDIT: / me turns into "* superjer" ??



  • Great decryption work. Somehow I doubted this was possible.

    It doesn't do that for * derula.



  • I love the one that comes up every now and then in the designer:

     A <insertclasshere> cannot be coverted to a <insertsameclasshere>

    I know why it happens... still seems like a WTF though!

    Most approximately-8x8 character cell fonts can narrow it down to two or three possible characters in each location with no more than a single horizontal row of pixels. The rest is just dictionary matching.

    TRWTF is of course that he felt the need to anonymise this and then went and put it in his damn name anyway.

    I got as far as "reference", the "til" in versatilia, and the "e" at the end, and then I gave up because it was late and wanted to bed. Somehow I didn't notice the word "script", mistaking the r for g or q, which have the same top pixels. Meh, Photoshop's kerning doesn't match system kerning.

    Be happy you don't have to work with Delphi for .NET. I once had it spit back out at me that it was "unable to cast object of type System.Int32 to type System.Int32." This wasn't just a glitch in a designer; It was consistently reproducable when passing arrays (of any type) between .NET framework libraries and libraries written in Delphi for .NET in the fashion as dictated by Borland...
