    Thread Spotting


    In my travels through the dark underbelly of the Dev Shed forums, I have occasionally encountered many amusing threads. These are little gems which have made my day due to the spectacular stupidity of the question or the brilliance of the answers.

    If you spot any excellent ones, post them here.

    #1: In which tj_nt gets annoyed because of the inability to colorise plain text. Bonus points to DaWei_M for pointing out that red text will only be red on red phosphor monitors, and that the color of the underlying magnetic pattern is probably always brown.
