A deserved pint for Tim Cuthill come pub o'clock this afternoon, who notes "the importance of titling on web pages and how these are displayed in the title bar of the browser window cannot be underestimated", as this fine example from a well-known UK broadsheet demonstrates: Why Heath ledger will blow us - unfortunate …
Where I used to work, we had a unix system called "arsenic".
Another server had 'remote-login' services setup, as back then, a lot of the user terminals were hard wired into their closest server.
Someone had helpfully set the gecos (account information) field to say "remote login to arsenic"
If you ran the 'finger' command (yes, yes, old joke) to show current logged-in users, the truncation made it appear as:
Remote login to arse

Even setting aside for the moment that the person in question is dead, how immature must you be to find a cut-off title bar amusing or funny (especially considering you read the full title in the first half of the title bar)?
