Curmbox

I think nearly every time I visit Hotmail (I have an MSN account to talk to all of two people) I misread the word "curmbox" in the URL to be something not so, uhhh, "PG."

http://hotmail.msn.com/cgi-bin/folders?r=12345&curmbox=A123456

Sometimes I name variables in code things like "exgf" - particularly if they're used in cases like exgf.cleave(); or something. I always batch rename them later, after I decide what their real purpose is, but it's fun for awhile. "Curmbox" is probably not such a "funny variable name" as I realize what it means… I dunno, maybe I just need to get my head out of the gutter. Yeah, that's it. 🙂

  3. I've been dealing with the curmbox for years... I assume some wise ass working for msft during the development of hotmail thought it'd be funny... and now it's so deep in the coding it wouldn't be worth the effort to change it.

    That, or it is a universal word in the world of the turd burglarizing microsoft. 🙂
