Chamberlains - complete legal services for business

It’s all gone horribly wrong

Efforts to change the Chief Minister’s website over to a smiling Katy Gallagher are not going well.

Yesterday the site was assuring us that it would be complete by 5pm.

In fact it was looking pretty good around 3pm on the back pages.

But now the whole thing is down and there’s no projected return date.

So here’s how you do it kiddies. Roll back to the previous iteration, fix your development issues in a sandbox, and then kick it over. Upgrade time should not take more than an hour and if done properly more like 30 seconds to 5 minutes.

What’s Your opinion?

Are we surprised that the first thing that Katy has tried to do ended in failure?

To be fair, Katy probably has quite a lot on her plate at present.

Oh yeah I can see Katy taking time out from being Chief Mnister and sitting down at a terminal coding the new site.

Moron.

hardly fair – I doubt she does her own website 😛

…at least let her make her own failure first…

I don’t like the new font for the rebranding with the driectorate stuff.

Took a while but it’s up now. I would love to know what went wrong, or if it was just a case of higher ups sticking their oar in at the last minute.

…polishing a turd, or rolling it in glitter takes time.
