Is it funniest when the alt text is funnier than the comic?

I thought the convention was to name discoveries for the person who discovered them immediately following Euler.

Euler only invented half of Math, Cauchy invented the other half of Math.

The presents under the tree are actually a single gift connected by an underground ribbon system.

I watch Crime Pays, But Botany Doesn't. How did I not know what Pando was?

My password is just every Unicode codepoint concatenated into a single UTF-8 string.

I've never tried anything this dumb, but using + signs in email addresses for accounts causes strange behavior too.

Aye, it's surprising who can do the RFC and who just does a simple regex

I wrote the libvldmail to RFC-validate e-mail addresses. Contributors welcome!

In HPUX a long time ago, a standard character was treated, IIRC, as a backspace. Can't remember if it was a colon or caret or percent sign. But a fellow sysadmin had one in his NIS password and couldn't log into our HPUX machines!

Yeah, years ago I read a "trick" to managing email with Gmail. If you add a + and any text just before the @ in a Gmail address, the mail will still come to the main address. I'd sign up for things using the format User+Company@gmail.com and use that address to automatically sort emails into folder or delete/block them if they ended up spamming me. Unfortunately, at least one company that let me sign up for their site that way later migrated to a different system, and my old login with the plus sign stopped working. They were able to fix it for me, so that my account's email address no longer used the portion between the + and @, but it's made me reluctant to try that again. I do still sometimes do it when I'm signing up for freebies and think they'll spam me, though, especially in cases where I don't really care if I can log in to the site again in the future.

I have a router I can't use because its web-interface let you set a password that includes spaces, and when you try to log in it says your password can't have spaces.

Fun times... Surely there's a factory reset option somewhere?

Do the http request to login yourself and set the cookie in the browser manually. Or remove the JavaScript validation from the page.

Wirecutter Recommendation

Their 'best philosophy of epistemology' picks are great, but you can tell they're struggling a little in the 'why you should trust us' section.
