This isn't about Windows 8, more about computer idiocy, but it's funny!

    Hi Everyone.

    I was trying to register on the American's Elect web site when I got to the security questions.
    This one really got me...

    "What time were you born, rounded off to the nearest hour, example 21."

    I typed in 24 because I was born just before midnight.

    I got this response.

    "The answer must contain at least 4 characters."

    Oh well I finally gave up anyway, the most popular proposed candidate is Buddy Roamer.

    I don't think this is going to work.

    Mike

    Sounds like perhaps they wanted to prepare and send you a very detailed horoscope report based on your exact time of birth.
    Maybe they were looking for 0000 or 2400. Nice that they provided a two digit example and then demanded a four digit answer. Clever

    The computer is not idiotic, it is the people who put such stuff up. I always get mad when I get some erroneous mail (bill, etc.) and when I call they tell me that "the computer" made a mistake. They usually do not appreciate when I explain that they are morons.
