    According to dictionary.com, the third meaning of "deprecated" is "depreciated". I wil continue to use "depreciated", thank you.

    If you read the whole entry, it also points out that this equivalence is in fact erroneous, despite being widely accepted. So, it's acceptable, but not correct. A bit like when someone says "PIN number"

    Plus, while "deprecate" might mean "depreciate", "depreciate" certainly does not mean "deprecate".

    IMHO, TRWTF is going to the Subway website in the first place. What were you hoping to find? A downloadable BLT?

    I thought I'd find an underground transit system (downloadable, of course).

    There's a submarine called a grinder?

    Doesn't matter, all of us with email subscriptions already read it.

    What about subroutines?  Does "gosub" mean get a sammich?

     



  • sammich ? TRWTF is this ...

    Its sandwich , or if you are feeling more jovial, sarnie.

    The joke "How do you survive on the beach"  "because of all the sand which is there"

    doesn't work otherwise

    Bloody colonials ...grumble

    On a random note, the Subway Australia page looks a damn lot better.

    I tried the German site and on first glance, it didn't look half bad.

    On second glance, it is entirely made in Flash and the several Flash pages are glued together with Typo3.

    I especially liked:
    var checkFlash = DetectFlashVer(requiredMajorVersion, requiredMinorVersion, requiredRevision);
    if(checkFlash && isWin) {
    var alternateContent = '';
    } else if(checkFlash && !isWin) {
    var alternateContent = '';
    } else if(!checkFlash && isWin) {
    var alternateContent = '<table id="innerFrame" cellspacing="0"><tr><td id="innerFrameCell"><div> </div><div> </div><div> </div><div style="text-align:center; background-color:#ffffff;border:solid 1px #808080;padding:5px;">Diese Seite benötigt den Adobe Flash Player. <a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash/" />Get Flash</a><br><a href="http://www.subway-sandwiches.de/index.php?id=602">Hier gehts zur non Flashsite</a></div></td></tr></table>';
    } else if(!checkFlash && !isWin) {
    window.location.href = 'index.php?id=590';
    } else {
    var alternateContent = '<table id="innerFrame" cellspacing="0"><tr><td id="innerFrameCell"><div> </div><div> </div><div> </div><div style="text-align:center; background-color:#ffffff;border:solid 1px #808080;padding:5px;">Diese Seite benötigt den Adobe Flash Player! <a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash/" />Get Flash</a><br><a href="http://www.subway-sandwiches.de/index.php?id=602">Hier gehts zur non Flashsite</a></div></td></tr></table>';}
    if(alternateContent) {
    document.write(alternateContent);
    }

    (which is about as much as there is outside of the Flash application). Well, that's one way to write

    if(!DetectFlashVer(requiredMajorVersion, requiredMinorVersion, requiredRevision)) {
    if (isWin) {
    document.write('<table id="innerFrame" cellspacing="0"><tr><td id="innerFrameCell"><div> </div><div> </div><div> </div><div style="text-align:center; background-color:#ffffff;border:solid 1px #808080;padding:5px;">Diese Seite benötigt den Adobe Flash Player. <a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash/" />Get Flash</a><br><a href="http://www.subway-sandwiches.de/index.php?id=602">Hier gehts zur non Flashsite</a></div></td></tr></table>');
    } else {
    window.location.href = 'index.php?id=590';
    }
    }

    Especially the empty divs inside the single-row, single-column table are a bit frightening, but oh well. The URLs made me wonder, however. And, tadaaa, here we go: a login page for the "German Subway Intranet": http://www.subway-sandwiches.de/index.php?id=504

    Interesting is how you can add anything to the URL after their domain and it'll bring you to the homepage. And the index page is found for many IDs other than the default one, too. Same for the "Intranet" index, but then maybe these are all different "Intranet" sites but it won't let me access them for lack of a password. Some of this might be a typo3 WTF, but seriously, I can't imagine typo3 is supposed to be used like that.

    Also, I found this mildly funny: <meta name="robots" content="index,follow">, especially since everything's made of Flash...

    I've not had any problems with them recently.

    They stopped working back when the database was full, but they've been fine since Alex fixed that.

    That said, CS should really wait for the edit/delete window to close before sending the email.

    I suspect the window is configurable (up to infinity) so depending on the setting it could never get sent.

    Well they could make it, oh what is that called, oh yeah "SMART". Where instead of just dumbly using the edit window setting, it says "edit window or 30 mins, whichever comes first."

    But that's pretty moot, considering it's CS we're talking about.
