It's almost as if they took a router and glued an IOS AP to it




  • From the web UI of the Cisco 871W (a router with an integrated wireless access point):

    (Funny screenshot because it's a dual-monitor setup.) Also, this screenshot skips 2 certificate warnings (Firefox and Java), a "do you want to run signed content"? popup, and 2 different login prompts (HTTP BASIC and Java).

    Oh, and if you visit it via HTTP:// first, after you do the BASIC auth it will whine at you for being insecure and offer to shunt you over to HTTPS (now that your password has already been exposed). Good times.



  • Just... wow.

     

    Web pages should have never been allowed to open new windows. I don't think I've seen a legitimate use for it yet. Also, any router config interface that cares whether Java (unless they meant JS, although that's almost equally retarded) is enabled calls for at least one designer being clobbered with something excessively painful.

     I'd like to think that if Cisco had at least one designer, their web interfaces (both public web and admin) wouldn't be so craptacular...



  • You have this site on your bookmarks bar? Seriously?

    (I can't think of any other sites that start with "Has the Large H")

    The main configuration application there is written in Java. For better or worse, a lot of wireless controllers do this. Symbol in particular comes to mind, I think.

    http://hasthelargehadroncolliderdestroyedtheworldyet.com/

    YES

    (and that is why I took care to block out selected other portions of my screen including usernames, and close various tabs...) and since you're so curious make stuff has some neat projects I'll probably never do, and the other site is to appease the corporate overlords by participating in the silly wellness management program (take a look at the site, the banner images are their own WTF).



  •  Hey I'm all for having it bookmarked, but the toolbar is excessive. :)

     Try this one, it's something to look forward to: http://www.isitchristmas.com/



  • What's with all of blakey's links having a %20 appended, resulting in a 404?

    It frequently happens when you copy-paste a link.

    Also: [url]http://www.sometimesredsometimesblue.com/[/url] needs JavaScript support, which I find shameful.

    Even worse is what happens when you try to open the links in Firefox:

    Can you spot the error?



  • Don't blame me, it's this forum software. All I'm doing is copying the URL from another tab, pasting it into my post, then selecting the URL, clicking the Link toolbar button, pasting in the link again, and hitting Ok.

    Is there a more correct way of linking text here?

    Is it your ancient version of Firefox running on a crappy Linux Desktop Environment?

    Uhm... 404 not found.

    Miff's shot looks like Firefox 3+ on Window. You mean the OP's?

    I can tell Miff is running Linux because some of the pixels are inferior to the pixels you get on Windows.

    Miff's shot does not look like that at all.  It could be one or the other.  FF3 does not look like that in any version of Windows on which I've ever run it.

    I shall call it "customization".
