    Jab #2?

      Have you never dealt with enterprise software - there is way more money in the customisation of it than even in the core product (and that can be expensive enough).

        No, the last software system I worked alongside was a custom job anyway as there wasn't a product on the market that could do the job.

            Some of it is just due to their defaults not being suitable for this board, such as the vertical whitespace. Other stuff is because I had to go to great lengths to maintain the existing URLs and restore functionality that's popular but which they'd removed (such as neg rep and thread ratings), and there can still be odd corners where my testing didn't reach, often because it makes no sense for that functionality to affect what's over there - for example, the ?goto=newpost stuff that's in a completely different part of the code to everything else that does the job of working out how to get you where you want to be (and runs long after it, thereby throwing away all that work). And some of it is because people use the forums differently to me or admin or, it seems, many other people; and none of those people played with the test forum

                Lunch noodle soup.

                Replacement laptop ordered

                WM on. (Had to put the kitchen back together.) New machine has weird wash cycles.

                I'm knackered.

                  Went for a walk. It's clouded over and become quite dull, and the air felt damp. The breeze is ok but not nice. Feels colder than the 16 degrees my weather app is reporting.

                  Not a fast pace, about 20 min/mile but I was trying to find something to take a photo of. Didn't find anything that was especially inspiring.

                    When my WM went kaput several years ago, I really wish I had said to the landlady that I would replace it and simply take it with me when I go so I could have gotten something I would find useful rather than something that suited her pocket.

                      This afternoon's #firstworldproblem is having too much posh chocolate and not enough of the cheap stuff that I can guzzle
