Low Hanging Fruit Just As Sweet

Joe Strazzere sends an e-mail:

I happened to come across this site, saw the obvious bug, and thought of you.
Aren’t you honored?  😉

Look at the rolling banner images at the top.  One (http://www.123employee.com/media/disp_img01.gif) is “missing”.

Perhaps they simply outsourced the testing?

Even though Mr. Strazzere often errantly favors poor sports teams, he’s right about this:

Jeez, Joe, did you stop there?  Put your back into it!

What about the JavaScript error on the menu items at top?

Or the current articles in the sidebar overrunning the template?

Or broken images and mistmatched fonts on other pages?

How do you say that in Igorot?  Is that a real language, or just developerspeak?

Or how about that Webcam/Live View that’s sort of not live?

No, I don’t think they outsourced their QA; I think they probably paid $897 for a Web presence and got what they paid for.

I think Joe’s just shining me on about my predilection for finding the obvious flaws with Web sites and applications, but here’s my query for you, gentle reader: excepting the failed Web cam, the other issues he and I found are probably only low level issues.  But would you do business with a company that has this many simple issues on its Web site?

    Yes, I did stop there.

    I decided that if I could find one obvious bug just by staring at the home page for a few seconds, I should outsource the real digging to my friend the hater.

    (And you are correct that this web site certainly doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence in this company.)
