Worst UI evar!!1!one!!

2009-03-28 00:00:40.918022+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Snicker. I figured I should get ahead of the game on some of the electrical rework I've got in play, since we found a little mold this morning which means that I need to get off my butt and put in insulation and crawl space vapor barrier and it'll be easier to put in the insulation if I can tear out and replace the electrical at the same time.

So I went to the "online building permits" page, clicked the "REGISTER" link, filled out my info, was promised an email but that was half an hour ago, so I go back to the page, click "LOGIN", and nothing happens. Then I look down at my status bar and see that the link does:

javascript:function DoNothing(){return false;}

I'm going to be meeting with some folks next week to talk about data openness. The online app lets me search building permits, but since it's all JavaScript reworking the same page it looks like it'll be pretty hard to script (and, yes, a network sniffer gave me some URLs with lots of opaque data, and changing a few things in that gave me errors rather than results). Looks like now I've got two items on the agenda...

OK at first I thought this was titled "worse UTI evar!!" But seeing as it's not...I have no comment. (except, obviously, this one.)

Hmmm... I wonder if I'd post about the worst UTI ever, or if I'd manage to, in that one instance, self-censor.
