"Be careful what you wish for, lest it come true"

An alternative title to this blog entry is - Full marks to PR department – fire the technies.

I have just received this quaint little note.

I am not too sure if the small font on a green background with a serif font is a good idea. But if you are going to break one rule of “50-plus friendly” web sites you might as well blow a couple of more for luck.

The e-mail rambles on to say: “my apologies for any inconvenience these 'growth pains' may have caused over the last week”.

Well done Saga for generating so much buzz but surely a company worth £6 billion can get the IT right. What’s the betting that SagaZone was a skunk works development and the whole thing was probably being run on a couple of clapped out servers with limited bandwidth Internet connection. Dick Stroud
