Too stupid to be true



  • But in fact is is absolutely true, I have seen  it myself. This notification bubble is from a key server program, that runs on a Pc with a HW dongle connected to it and serves licenses to other PCs on the network. It is part of some sort of accounting program, I don't know its name.

    Italian readers will already be laughing, I suppose.

     

    Now a little explaination for non-italian readers: the text means something like "Key-avator is ready to give away the keys". But the name "Key-avator", while somehow sounding like "something that gives away the key" in some sort of pseudo-english, sounds exactly like an italian word that can be translated to some sort of pig english for "fucker".

     

    I am amazed that  no one at the software house that sells this program (other that the programmer that actually named the program like that) have thought of it. Even the person running the program did not get it until I explained it to her. Then she got really embarassed.

     

    Sorry for my poor english, I am italian. And sorry if I did something wrong like posting in the wrong forum or something similar; this is my first post.

    No problem. However, next time, please get a printout of the camera picture, put it on a wooden table, take a photo of that, which you fax to be scanned and upload that picture. :-)

    Sorry, I was in a hurry so I didn't have time to do that. And while I own a wooden table and a scanner, I have no colour printer and no fax machine. 



  •  Community Server never ceases to amaze me. At the time of this post, Kurgan had a post count of one. Apparently from his two posts in this very thread.

    Remind me here, we were urged to fix a bug in a color printer in one of our department. Some specific work document that need to be printed out twice a day were hanging up the printer. The firmware did not accept that PS document for unknown reasons. The problem made it's way to very technical staff of manufacturer and, after a few month, the firmware update was pushed in the printer. The first thing the department did was making a test, gets out properly, yeah, it works! Then then go back to their usual work with that printed sheet. That is fax it in black and white to clients.....



  • Was that printer from Lexmark? They are notorious in breaking the PostScript standard and even too lazy to provide workarounds in their own drivers...
