Canberraconnect website with untested changes

swissbignose 26 January 2008 22

It appears that someone has promoted changes to the website without proper review.

Unless someone is trying to send a message stating the A.C.T. Government is boring and tedious…

Canberra Connect website

[Ed. Its a little hard to see in the above image so here’s a link to the original. For those with keener eye’s you’ll note that there’s a link to ‘Blah Blah’, ‘grants test’, ‘Tenders and Contracts test link’ and a ‘Test link to ACT Home’. Priceless.]

Well, I guess it’s more polite than “blah blah”.

And now here’s faunding for projects to link families, schools and communities.

The website is currently unavailable, while the website is still up and working.

Not defending Intact or anything, but they don’t have a single thing to do with the operation of that site.

I was once made redundant from my job. The one redeeming feature of this unemployment was that I no longer had to deal with InTACT on a daily basis.

no room is too small to swing a cat… and there is surely an excuse for crap websites – what would you rail at, ant? life would be sooooo boring (unless you have a cat and a small-ish room)

Better to throw the aging cat at the computer I should think.

In 2008, there is NO excuse for crap websites.

I like to treat Canberra gov websites as a chess game that keeps my ageing brain in order. Unfortunately it doesn’t often work so I compensate by throwing the computer at my ageing cat.

Thanks for that Mr Waffle, I’ll have you know that I consider myself to be very courteous and helpful to my customers. As LIC said, nobody will be there to fix it until Tuesday – if you are lucky.

“Don’t be dissing INTACT, foo!

Yeah, they do a good enough job of making arses out of themselves as it is…

I would of thought “blah blah” on any Government website would be a case of truth in advertising.

“The new honest Canberra Connect – Like we care. What-ever!”

ant ant 10:17 am 27 Jan 08

well spotted! that’s too funny. lots o stuff on that Blah Blah linky too.

surely ‘blah blah’ will be more user-friendly and earnest than many other state and territory governments’ sites? we should be trumpeting this as a step forward!

I assume you’ve let them know? Having “blah blah” on the home page is surely worthy of public humiliation, but still it’d be nice to drop them a message 🙂

Don’t be dissing INTACT, foo!

LIC LIC 11:59 pm 26 Jan 08

Still there, and I’d guess its staying till Tuesday. No-one will be at home at Intact to fix it.

Yeah – don’t quite know what’s going on. I made sure I wasn’t looking at a cached copy. It’s still looking screwed to me. Obviously, the web admins are not Saturday night RiotACT readers.

jase! jase! 11:46 pm 26 Jan 08

still does it for me

Really? I just looked and it’s still there. They’re going to have a bit of a spike in their unique user hits!
