Survey Results

How often do you shoot down product tool choices your manager / team lead presents to your team?

Survey period: 19 Nov 2018 to 26 Nov 2018

Why you would ever buy a tool for a person using a tool without asking them about the tool is beyond me.

I am with you. I own my company and have multiple clients through the Southeast. So, there is never enough time to get bored, between new Modification requests, new Bug reports and many clients with a slightly different version. Poke tongue | ;-P

Also, converting from VB6 to C#, only to discover that string handling is abysmal, and dates are truly ridiculous. OMG | :OMG:

Any proponent of C# who argues that VB6 is "much more verbose" is someone that has never used VB6.
Take responsibility for your actions and failure to act when you should. that is what everybody else has to live with. It's OK to make a mistake. It's not OK to try to cover it up.
