Dear Local Council

When selecting a provider for your bespoke Health & Safety training software, please try in future to look for a company that meets the following criteria:

  1. Has a company website on which all the images have actually been resized to fit, rather than disproportionately shrunk to 20-30% of their original size using the height and width attributes in the IMG tag.
  2. Has a registered company address that isn’t someone’s house in the suburbs.
  3. Hires programmers that don’t put the user database in Program Files. It’s called Program Files for a reason: it’s because program files go there. Data goes in AppData. THE CLUE IS IN THE NAME.

It took me less than 5 minutes to find 2 serious bugs in the program, besides requiring admin rights. I hope it was cheap, because I’d be ashamed to put out work of this quality, and I don’t pretend to be a software development company. These idiots are so pitifully amateur I can’t even bring myself to name and shame them; they have enough shame already.

Love and kisses,

    Name and shame please AT!

    I’ve had my first bad experience with HP today – after years of avoiding receiving one mouse shipped on a pallet, or woeful printer behaviour – and I could do with a cheer up.
