The laser just kept reading the stupid swastika tattoo on the back of his hand. Or maybe the Chinese character that he thinks means "strong" but just really means "Jesus has diarrhea".

whither_apophis: Someone got into their system thru a backdoor


I hope someone takes credit for this. It's too awesome not to.

This reminds me of my corner store.
They will not check a price. And they don't care if the self is different. And they don't care if there is a promo. And they don't care if a prom is not being honored on what it says.
Rage.
Rage. Rage. Rage.

Well if Canadian Tire would just stop using the software they bought in 1982 and upgrade, this wouldn't have happened.

Or make patches affordable and not try to sell new software?

Had a similar issue years ago when someone with a little bit of knowledge and too much access accidentally changed the register home page to a picture of an effeminate Maple Leafs fan in a failed attempt at a practical joke. Fortunately a Maritime store opened early and called the Service desk right away.

Sadly, no.

Also happened at the Whitby store, apparently.

But they do sell snacks, ground coffee, clothes, tools, camping gear, guns and ammo, fishing supplies, gardening/lawn care supplies and bedding plants, housewares, pet supplies, tires and auto parts, boating and trailer supplies, and I've never been to one that didn't have a kick ass hotdog cart out front.

Wow, this story is from our local internet news lady.  This Canadian tire is one of the top ten stores in Canada as there are no other big box retailers around.  The No Frills beside it is one of the top 5 stores in Canada because Lindsay is fairly low income area.

Meanwhile, Hasbro is looking at their figures for the month and saying "By God! We've got a Mr. Potato Head trend! One store in Canada sold 12,000 in one day! Crank up the MPH factory! We need to roll out a million of these things!"

This is one of the earliest film depictions I can think of that is of a person on the autistic spectrum. It's not a great depiction, but it's a try. Rather than just a nerd or rainman-like stereotype, Malvin has asked Jim to let him know when he's being rude and insensitive and while he struggles with social skills he's highly perceptive in other ways like when he instantly knows Falken's Maze is the key that starts the rest of the film.

So, who got canned in the last week from IT?

I know I had a list of accounts/passwords that I wasn't authorized to have, and were not changed after I left one job... which gave me to pretty much everything in the system except the Outlook server.

I was actually responsibile and sent the head of IT an email (his private account), and suggested a list of accounts and backdoors that he might want to change/close after that a round of layoffs...  but damn I could have had fun.

Can you imagine trying to return the core for the alternator you just purchased and your receipt says you purchased Mr. Potatohead and Mr. Potatohead core charge?

You get through that, and then 1 year later the alternator fails and you have to go back with your Mr. Potatohead receipt and try to get a warranty replacement.  Well, that's going to be a problem.

/fwiw, I own shares in the company that owns Canadian Tire

"Facepalm" tag subby? Try "Awesome" tag instead.
