I have got so many emails that I have a very serious blog and sadly I have also been accused that I don’t have a sense of humor. It is not true (probably) and I want to prove it. I will be posting some things that make me smile every now and then. This is the first one in the series. Enjoy and have fun!
My friend Arun shared a story about an interesting incident that happened when he was working in the middle east. First some background. Arun was a power user of the web and was making the most of all the resources that he knew on the web. One of his favorite sites then was a site called “Experts Exchange (expertsexchange.com)”
He could find answers for some of his technical questions over there. After a few days of using the site, he got a call from his manager to see him 1-1. The discussion was that Arun was surfing questionable sites during office hours and that had to stop immediately. Arun was perplexed but his manager had the proof. From the access logs, they had found that Arun was surfing a site related to “sex change.” 🙁
In reality, what had happened was that the website in the logs was read as “expert sex change” rather than “experts exchange.” and the person had not bothered to clickthrough the site to find out what exactly was the site all about.
Interestingly, the site name is now changed to experts-exchange.com. I am sure many more people had complained about the name 🙂
