As a mild INTP on Myers-Briggs, most of the time I am a quiet thinker. Then I start to ask the hard questions. Like why Victor Brett's ideas are not everyday reality yet? (Unfortunately I know the answer to that one.)

I like the ideas in Gerald Weingerg's books. I like to keep myself updated about JavaScript, CSS, Python, Perl, Excel, NLP, QA and stuff - I don't remember it all, but that's what google is for. And I like to read a good SF every now and then.

My answers on SO might take longer to write but, then, I want to think and test things through before posting. I'm currently in GMT time zone. (And no, I don't get the English rules for writing commas.)

number formatting does not apply to text values and literal string 19271.23.8 is a text value

comment Unicode play icon ▶ present in a page title is incorrectly displayed in my Firefox
the character displayed correctly on another computer with the menu hidden. unfortunately I don't have the troubleshooting info from the working firefox for comparison what exactly is different. and it is not a different character since both texts are the same - from <title>...</title>

thanks for the history lesson :) so you say this is just an undocumented left-over and is in all Windows versions known today?

comment Windows Open file dialog search wildcards
@martineau thanks for the Win XP link. I still would like to see it documented somewhere that you SHOULD be able to use wildcard characters in the File Name box. What Windows (other OS?) versions support it? How can I be sure this is not something special on my computer with all the 3rd party apps?
