back to article Cisco.com suffers lower case t breakdown

The lower case letter 't' was briefly removed from the home page of Cisco's website on Thursday morning. The Sesame Street-style caper failed to affect capital letter Ts. Numerous Reg readers were quick to tell us of the curious case of the missing letter on Thursday morning. Several theories emerged, including the possibility …

To err is human...

Yorkshire t's ?

Maybe they are Yorkshire t's and have all gone t'pub. Or, since they are already silent, maybe they decided to become invisible too :-)

Saving bandwidth?

Maybe they were trying to save bandwidth by removing the letter t from the English alphabet? Obviously a capital T is useful.

I suspect all those trying to view the page to see the fault offset the saving it so they just put it back in.

As someone who played Infocom games

I can only conclude that a group of salesmen showed up at the door, and in return for a flashlight, gave them a T-remover.

Getting rid of tabs

Looks to me like somebody tried to regex out of tabs from the documents, but somehow forgot to escape their expression properly...

regexp snafu?

whats the betting \t was the culprit?

html optimisation gone wrong, e.g. stripping tabs out of code to reduce page size by a few bytes

.*?t*\w..... instead of .*?\t*\w.....

And they'd like you to think

That they're the kind of guys who dot their Is and cross their Ts? Huh? They don't even have Ts. That's just damn careless.

OK then.

Was this due to over-enthusiastic use of T-Cut?

I think..

This should actually be listed under "Rise of the Machines"

Sofwar

Managemen

and others..

Cisco supercomputers gaining sentience, start by restructuring simple words under the guise of an accident, subliminally sending us signs to go to war and that it wants to control humanity.

Probably engineered the credit crunch too.. get us at each others' throats!

takedown order

Pro'ly some uber Gargantu-Corp got delusions of relevance, thought it had copyrights to the letter 't', and issued a takedown order at which some poor n00b at Cisco panicked and complied; bosses were on the golf course (after having reserved their 't' time -- were they in on it?) at the time, hence so long before the situation was rectified.
