I vividly remember being told by a computer programmer that a computer program is only as good as the person who wrote it, that if a computer "goes wrong" it is 99% of the time due to human error.
Now I know I am prone to errors, but when it comes to setting important things up on computers I do check what I have done. I test it. So when I was setting up web pages, I checked that the pages looked right and checked that the links worked.
Unfortunately the people who set up the pages for BLPT's Trust Board Minutes don't seem to do this. For the second month running (and many times before that) they have put up an agenda where none of the links work. This is because the links point not to a web site but to an internal document on the BLPT server.
For at least the fourth time I have pointed out this same error, which has on different agendas each time. If I didn't want to read the documents I wouldn't bother - it's beginning to feel like I am doing their testing for them! You would think however, that if a mistake has been made more than once, you would check to make sure you don't make the same mistake again. Apparently not.
Not only that, but there is another "issue" with the agendas - the link for the June Agenda actually leads to the April agenda (which seems to have been uploaded as the June agenda.) Last months the links for this April agenda were working (after I pointed out the mistake and it was corrected). This month they are not. The working file has been replaced with one which does not work.
Does nobody check things any more?
Perhaps I should ask for a consultancy post!
