Excellent question.Mike T. said:And this is supposed to be an improvement? *I* can see it isn't and I don't know squat. Why didn't the site owners buy software that WAS better or pay for getting software engineered to be better? Stuff that's worse when we're told it's better just annoys people and makes them visit less. That's not whining it's just choice, human nature, and common sense.

I wasn't involved in selecting the software, but I'm guessing they didn't want to write their own.Mike T. said:Pardon me for being a bit surprised by your repsonse Craig. As the dad of a son who programs for one of the world's biggest companies for a living (Alcan) and who paid for the education that it took for him to achieve that position I know that ANYTHING can be programmed.
They sit down with a client, analyze the need, and if the client is willing to spend the money they make the program. That's just what he's doing in Zurich this week.
Doesn't exsist? Looked at 50 packages? They left out the most important step. Ahemm.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but this site isn't exactly a gold mine. Going open source is probably what's allowing this here circle of spit to continue. While guys like your son could be hired to program the latest greatest version of message board software ever concieved, it isn't likely to be a good biz decision in the long run.Mike T. said:...
