To be precise about Turkish keyboards (gleaned from Doruk, the only regular Turk on the network) -- there are two kinds of "i" in the Turkish alphabet, one with a dot above and one without. The one with the dot, when capitalized, still has a dot, and the one without does not. So it needs two new characters beyond the standard ASCII set to deal with that. For these, it uses Ux0130 and Ux0131, moved to the 8-bit set by Windows Turkish to 0xDD and 0xFD. So shifted i in Turkish appears on Latin-1 character sets as Ý, and unshifted I in Turkish appears on Latin-1 character sets as ý.

And Now You Know.

Okay, so a part of my job is to deal with Vending Machine issues. I get emails whenever someone doesn't get their snack or their money is lost in the machines, then I do a reimbursal, and take it up with the guy who takes care of the machines themselves. This is an email I received this morning...this is what drives me nuts...

<b>I've been having some on going issues with your vending machines
for the past year now. Everytime I goto put money in the vending
machine, I get EXACTLY WHAT I WANT !!! What kind of malarky is
this ? How do you expect to run a successful vending machine
venture if you're constantly giving people what they ask for and
nothing else ??!?!?! I demand that this issue be resolved
immediately. Blah blah blah blah blah !!!


Thank you
</b>

Does anyone else see what's wrong with this email????

It's unsigned? They didn't specify which vending machine gave them what they wanted?

<Knux> so, you like the taste of bawls?
<gwalla> the grounds are still in the coffee
<Simon_Jester> Yes, Knux, I could suck down Bawls every day.
<Simon_Jester> Wait.
<Simon_Jester> Hrm.
<JeremiahSmith> You need to more careful when you drink, Simon, I think you have some Bawls on your chin, there...
* Simon_Jester wipes his chin.
<Simon_Jester> Aw, man, now my chin is all sticky from the Bawls!
<JeremiahSmith> Yeah. You don't want Bawls dripping on your chin.
* Pi-Deep puts a stop to this conversation right here and now.
<Pi-Deep> *BLAM* *BLAMBLAM*
* General-tyger is glad he's not in the conversation.
<Pi-Deep> I do not need to hear about people having sticky chins from sucking on balls.
<Pi-Deep> No matter how you spell it.
<JeremiahSmith> Awwww. Killjoy.
<Simon_Jester> Don't knock Bawls 'till you've tried it, Pi. ;)
<Pi-Deep> Sorry, Simon, but I don't swing that way.
<Simon_Jester> Bah, you're probably just jealous.
<Simon_Jester> Jealous of all the fun Jer and I have with our Bawls!
<Pi-Deep> You leave the poor defenseless PiBot out of this!

[16:24] <Pronto> Your biggest fear should be not be foreign armies but trained Canadian beavers. You know the little furry geezers with buck teeth that gnaw on everything? They are amassing and poised at the border just waiting for th signal to cross and go after your lumber. It's true. We've pumped them so full of stimulants that they can go thru a one acre forest in minutes and turn the trees into toothpicks at a furious rate.

[23:07] * kreely whips out her assimilater
[23:07] * kreely ass laminates you
[23:07] * David blinks
[23:07] <kreely> I'm a bit dyslexic at times
[23:07] <David> so it seems.
[23:08] <kreely> you've never heard the joke, We are Dyslexic of Borg, prepare to be ass laminated
[23:08] * Cthulhu loves that joke
[23:08] * kreely does too =)
[23:08] <Cthulhu> great minds think alike
[23:08] * kreely ass laminates Pi
[23:08] <kreely> always ;0
[23:08] <kreely> ;)
[23:08] * Howard stands way over ------------->here.
[23:08] <Pi> O.o
[23:08] * Pi joins Howard.
[23:08] * Cthulhu thinks David is following her :P
[23:09] * kreely falls down laughing irl
[23:09] <Howard> These asslaminators tend to distribute... how do you say?
[23:09] <Howard> "Splash damage?"
[23:09] <kreely> that's it..no more lexapro for me
[23:09] * Pi stands behind Howard
[23:09] <Howard> Just as long as you're facing me.
[23:09] <Howard> You can shield me from the laminator splash.
[23:09] <Howard> Because it's behind you.
[23:09] * Pi fails to do so.
[23:10] * Howard runs around to Pi's front.
[23:10] * Schlock shoots it.
[23:10] <Howard> Hold still, you irrational number, you.
[23:10] <Pi> GAH!
[23:10] * Pi dies.
[23:10] <Howard> Ow, man.
[23:10] <Howard> Right in the, you know.
[23:10] <STrRedWolf> NO!!!!!
[23:10] <Howard> The FRONT.
[23:10] <STrRedWolf> WE NEED PI!!!!
[23:10] <kreely> sorry, that was just regular H2O in that batch
[23:10] * kreely normally uses a large laminating machine
[23:10] <kreely> sorta like a xerox
[23:10] <Howard> Ah. So it's more of an assteaminator, then.
[23:10] * kreely ponders
[23:11] <Howard> Still, that's gonna leave a mark.
[23:11] <kreely> you know, I do believe you're correct, Howard
[23:11] * kreely needs an assteaminator!
[23:11] <Howard> UPDATE
[23:11] <kreely> Hang the mark up in the office?
[23:11] * Pi dives headfirst into the bunker!

Have we tried mailing them a list of accounts which have been spamming? If accounts start getting taken away the spam will drop, I bet. Assuming they enforce the rule.

[17:37:59] * ^^DeAmOn^ kills pi
[17:38:37] <Pi> ?
[17:53:17] * Pi dies dutifully, but wonders why he was killed.
[17:53:56] <^^DeAmOn^> you deserve it
[17:54:41] <Pi> Well, YEAH. But you've knwon that for a long time. I'd think you'd have been used to it by now. What prompted the most recent occasion?
[17:55:50] <^^DeAmOn^> Your nick
[17:55:52] <^^DeAmOn^> I want it
[18:29:24] <Pi> You just want my body. Admit it.
