Someone on the Lowes website team seems to have done a global search-and-replace for “led” with “LED” and it shows up everywhere…

Reminds me of a story from a past life as a sys admin. Task: write a script that will clean old files (> 2 weeks) from /tmp on a bunch of work stations that are always left on. Me: accidentally runs the script from “/” as root on a test work station that had all my company’s development work and source code repository stuff NFS mounted R/W for everyone including root. Wonders why the script is taking so long? Thought I killed it, but it somehow survived and continued running over night after I left for the day. Next day: reports of missing source code files and build breakage start trickling in. (Hopefully the statute of limitations has expired and it is now safe to tell this story!)

+Edward Morbius G+ marked your comment as spam; I just saw that and unmarked it. I guess despite a UI that pushes towards short form by hiding all but the first few lines of things, they still assume that comments of only a few words are spam. :P
