IT people … so typical, anywhere I go they’re all the same: like Dilbert represented one once “you’re not worth breathing my burp”.
I almost lost it today with one. I have a database under MSAccess which data have been hosted for some time on a server. Naturally enough and because it’s such a pain to set up every Access on every PC to access data that are thus remotely hosted, I asked that a web page be made and integrated in our intranet.
Long story short: the website is almost done save a couple of details (which I can forget having them
fixed changed [format of date, how difficult would it be to change that?]) and now I’ve been made aware that there wouldn’t be any use for me accessing data on the server via my MSAccess application?
That was not the deal.
Later, I vented my frustration to Jacques who merely said: IT people only provide the minimum that suits them and otherwise declares impossible whatever bugs them to work on.
