Some that came to mind:

  • The sites with that "You need to subscribe to keep reading" message aren't a problem for me.
  • VSCode and Chrome are my 2 most used apps.
  • I cringe when I see a .php at the end of an URL.
  • When I see the number 418, I laugh.
  • I can tell a color by it's hex value.

Even if you use PHP in 2022, showing the extension in the URL is so nasty πŸ˜… ... Is like .aspx

TBH I don't have a problem with those 2, mainly because that's just a static site, generally .... so they have a better excuse to do that than the PHP folks.

What's wrong with .cfm @metacollective ? This shows you're dealing with an established app written at least two decades ago. Old but gold :)

PS: I know one of it's creators personally from high school.

Luckily I wasn't. I mean I dealt with CF every now and then and still do, but never was the only thing I do all day long.

Google was not responsible. Once again you can thank Xerox Park for inventing GUIs and this wonderful piece of Pythonistic humor. datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc2324

Open DevTools, press F1 and look for "Disable JavaScript". They will not be able to remove the content if you don't let them run JS 😎

my phone sometimes is 404;
I'm 401'd when entering my house without a key;
my son is 403'd from being mean to others;
putting the toilet paper in backwards is 405'd;
my towel folding tends to 406 often;
if my son doesn't listen, he often gets a 503;
when asking for anything special, I tend to 302 to my wife;
at the end of the day, if all goes well, I'd say the day was pretty 200;

Nothing drives me crazier than a website that has 4k pixel images downloading to display 100 pixel.
