I overheard a retold conversation between two people this afternoon. The conversation went something like this: Person A: I just heard the most ridiculous thing. Person B: Oh yeah, what is it? Person A: My friend who works at [XYZ Coorporation] told me they discovered the problem as to why a few of their servers [...]
Tag: Wednesday WTF
A New York Time’s article today titled Wind Energy Bumps Into Power Grid’s Limits caught my attention. It seems that despite the ability to harness power from these resources we are unable to use them because of the inability to transport the power. The power grid is balkanized, with about 200,000 miles of power lines [...]
Almost forgot about this today, so it’s not quite as clever as I was hoping my Wednesday WTFs would be, oh well. I can’t live up to my own expectations all the time. Michael Phelps in the wee stage of life Quite hilarious I think.
I was shown this blog Cake Wrecks earlier this week and some of the things on it are just absurd! Wedding Cake, of yourself — WTF? Someone is a closet cannibal Literal Transcriptions — The next cake I have ordered I’m going to try my hardest to confuse the hell out of the cake people [...]

This one isn’t really a surprise to me, but I couldn’t really find anything better. Someone posted this nearly two year old unresolved Ubuntu bug to digg. The bug filer complains that the current cow displayed when someone types apt-get moo does not look like an actual cow. The following is output from my terminal: [...]
On June 27 New York Times reported that Turkish Hackers ‘hijacked’ a few of the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) domain names. Last Thursday (July 3) ICANN confirmed these attacks mentioning that social hacking was partially involved. It should not be possible that the company in charge of assigning IP address and [...]
I came across this today and am very curious as to why this is: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=107666 If you used Open Firmware Password utility to create a password that contains the capital letter “U”, your password will not be recognized during the startup process (when you try to access Startup Manager, for example). After reading this I [...]
