  1. God that's beautiful. In an architectural schadenfreude sort of way.

  2. It failed so hard its art.

    Random bug of the day: running Firefox 39 on Windows, if I click one of the comment links on the right it opens up that page with the reply box, and the cursor in said reply box. If I then press page up or home keys the avatar icon of the author of the linked comment changes to a greyscale version of the normally green no-custom-avatar image.

    I have not yet tried it with Firefox running on a different OS.

    • On Firefox 41.0.1 on OS X, it happens whenever I click on a "reply" link. But it doesn't change the icon, it overlays the top 3/4ths or so. I can still see the original peeking out below the grayscale one.

        Works fine for me in Safari, and I'm not interested in debugging it. Let me know if you figure it out.

        For me: Once triggered (by pageup/down with focus on the comment box), I get a green no-avatar overlay atop the actual avatar, and also for all subsequent pushes of other reply buttons for other avatars.

        Reloading the page resets the trigger.

        Chrome 45.0.2454.101, Windows

    My home that is.

    Someone should make an art installation and intentionally include a windows blue screen somewhere. Then all the people who see it will think it is by accident and take a photo of it. Making the piece of art famous.

    Personally, I'm liking the Domo-kun clock.

    Reminds me of the screens at security in Dubai Airport that told them that they should activate Windows. Oh.. except that Windows crashes are not preventable, and that there's probably someone somewhere in that mall who can restart the PC and maybe even review the crash dumps and reduce the chance of that happening again. I doubt that there's anyone on the staff in Dubai who can convince the oil 'barons' who control our oil that they should pay for Microsoft Windows.
