This is simply gorgeous.
The Reg skips lightly across the Atlantic to bring you premium Bork, fresh from the US of A in The Register's mercifully occasional series of computers behaving badly. Today's example of the breed was spotted by Register reader Josh while rolling along a highway near the Kansas city of Wichita. Normally exciting motorists …
Hell, no. That's one of the more pleasant billboards I've seen.
(When I'm driving through Kansas - which I do pretty frequently - one of the best moments is when I get the hell off I-70. Partly, of course, that's just because now I'm off I-70; but partly it's because billboards seem to be rare on the non-Interstate highways. US-40 is really quite pleasant with no giant advertisements to annoy you once you're through Oakley.)
Not a windows bug but irritating - a local pub with a cash register with a two line display where the programmer seems to have been unaware of the CRLF concept. As a result it comes up with messages like "LERK LOGGED OFF" and "Z SUMO LOGGED OFF".
I've never met Lerk or Sumo but they both sound a bit worrying. (The place is shut now anyway.)
