I almost walked right past this on the way to work. This is the big Macy's sign on the corner of 34th and 7th in Manhattan. [Picture taken August 4, 2003]

Dsc00046Update Aug. 25, 2005: The original two pictures are down, but Billy Scott supplies us with this more recent example from summer '05.


Classic! Not just on an ATM screen, but a billboard screen, for everyone walking by to see.

I like the title of the dialog on the third screen: Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low. The problem isn't that there isn't enough virtual memory, its that the minimum amount is to low. Shouldn't that come up in the dialog where you set this kind of stuff?
