Ordering software  
The way ordering works is, I create an order request form with printouts from the Web site, including the total shopping cart with shipping/handling and all. However, I can't actually place the order, as only the Business Office has credit cards.

As a courtesy and to avoid accidental duplications when I go back to a site to order something new, I clear out my shopping cart after I print it.

At Academic Superstore, this produces the following page:

# Your cart is empty and sad.
# To fill it with wonderfulness, search for items below.
# When you find something of interest, click [add to cart button]
# [search boxes and stuff]

For some reason, I am finding this particularly amusing today.

It's not robot. It's not quite Engrish.
It's very amusing.

I try to avoid ordering software. Asking nicely gets more results (if not better ones, YMMV)... oh, wait... never mind.
