Post by: pwhodges on 28 Apr 2015, 07:57
I guess we need somewhere to accumulate stupid things about computers...

I assume that renders "bipitty bobbitty boop" as 0xBBB00B

Close. 0xBBB00B is "bibbity-bee halfy bibbity bitey bee"

Well, isn't this amusing. I received an e-mail from "Microsoft Company USA"... sent from a French domain... written in Hindi.

I'm tempted to write them a response in Arabic and see what happens.

Throw them completely - send it in Klingon

That'd be fun but apparently Klingon isn't supported by Outlook. I had a whole story written up and everything but instead of those cool Klingon characters it's just   -.

That will be a font issue, as not all Unicode fonts include the Klingon section.  Try Arial or Times New Roman.

The web version of Outlook got an update. They removed the one button that I use the most: the 'mark as read' button that appears when you hover over an e-mail's subject line. :facepalm:
