For fifty bucks, I expect service with a smile.

Comment 2

I'm with you up until step 2, but I can't understand how to reproduce step 3.  
How is `no $50' a step to reproduce?

[btw, hyatt, I'd also like $50, and I'm even willing to smile.  then again, i'm 
a minor by law, so depending on the service you're referring to, it may be 
illegal for me to get involved...

I can't reproduce that reliably here, but it does happen intermittently.
Considering your user agent, perhaps we could pay you to use dogfood?  Oh yeah,
we already do...
Adding newmod, helpwanted keywords, ->future.  Note that, to verify this, jrgm
will need to look in his wallet and see $50 too.

I demand that this be escalated! I'm tired of paying the $1.50 service fee at 
the Tech Credit ATM in 22!

hmm. WHO CONFIRMED THIS! When I launch mozilla and open the 
wallet there doesn't seem to be a spot for money :) just credit cards. 
Reporter: Please explan how money goes in the computer (cd drive?)

I can't seem to reproduce this bug. After following steps 1 and 2, there's clearly three polymer-plastic yellow-brown coloured Aussie $50 notes. Maybe this bug is only present on American builds of Wallet...

Well, I guess three Aussie $50 notes are almost worth a US $50... ;-)

I can reproduce the original bug. All I see is $35. Hyatt: if you get a chance, 
please give me $50 (or $500) as well.
sk3: now wait here. If non NS people are going to get money, I should too.

Some other QA and I agree that Ben should get $50 if he can eat 10 whoppers in 
8 hours.  We are admittedly doubtful, since Ben seems to be just a little bit 
smaller than Claudius...

I've easily reproduced this bug, heck, I've got four kids, two in college/grad
school!  If you can't repro this one, come see me and I'll "help".  I'm willing
to kick in $10 bucks to help Ben out, I'll even buy him some donuts on a
one-time basis. Re-assigning to don, ben's manager cause I'm a bona-fida
pointy-headed manager.

I would agree with Blake: Claudius may in fact be able to eat Ben entirely.

Thanks Jim!  I'm glad that our veep recognizes the seriousness of this bug
report, taking the time to reproduce it himself.

BTW, can someone explain to me why the Hell this is a Win2K platform-only bug
and why it's considered a "pp" (platform parity) problem?  I thought wallets, by
their very nature, were cross platform.  Then again, I have seen some big-ass
wallets on occssion.

Speaking of wallets, shouldn't Steve Morse really own this bug?

I18N, L10N: the currency symbol should of course be externalised. I'd like £50.
I managed to come up with a minimised testcase:

Don: This bug was marked 'pp' because it will not affect Linux users, who, it is
argued, have no need for money. See Adam D. Moss 2000-09-21 04:45 comment.

This is obviously an international affair since it involves a New Zealander

And that will get it off Vishy's radar when he looks for wallet bugs to triage.

Hyatt's plan is becoming clear: if he waits long enough, Ben will have left the
US and so Hyatt will be saved the $100.
Well, I will _visiting_ the US sometime over the next few weeks, so maybe if I 
donated $20 while I was there we could finally mark this one as in-progress!?
Sure; it would probably be best if you dropped it by my cube while you were here
(or post it to me), I can deal with it from there on. Would that be ok?
let's not change the purpose of this bug, please.

David will continue to need to give me $100 no matter which country I am in.

Since Hyatt is not doing his part here, I decided to let the rest of the 
community join in the fun. Go to and 
donate money (fake money, but who cares :)

Somewhat like the hungersite, you can give money to ben!
Before I donate, I need Ben to put forward a case of why he is worthy for the 
money, and what he is going to use it for.
For why, see
I expect he will put the money towards buying lego.

Of course, if this bug is fixed, then the entire community would have to receive
$50 or else it would have to be reopened.
No, that would be a "give everyone $50" metabug, which this would block.
Too bad they don't have a $50 here
