No Context Computing

I see wild stuff on computer screens as I spend most of my waking hours staring at them. I will capture strange phenomena, mundane text, and goofy messages here.

Feel free to contribute any of your curiosities as well!

My Twitter user pic still remains the time I accidentally generated an extreme aesthetic while testing a bug fix at work like five years ago. In the spirit of the thread I won’t say what the product or bug was

God I wish. No it was 100% some weird rich guy’s failproject that I signed onto because it sounded very cool and it wound up running on fumes for like 2 years of disastrous mismanagement before folding

I did get to play with some experimental intel cameras for a bit however

Yep, I spent 20 minutes investigating this for fun and you guessed the right character.

ød is 0xF864 in Latin1, and 0xF864 is 鴇 “bustard” in GBK encoding. And then even though in the official GBK spec it’s a traditional character, the limited Windows 95 font fell back to the simplified Chinese character for “bustard”, 鸨
