Over the last week I have seen
- the ATO website being down for three days

URL sent was pointing towards Nirvana), for a few days after a
scheduled upgrade, performed during the day.
All three problems lasted for multiple days.
According to my wife, an accountant, she has, over the last year or
so, no certainty to lodge statements on any given day, because the ATO
website is so extremely unreliable.
Yes, and what is worse, many of these kinds of organizations have
virtually unlimited funds to do the job correctly, but they fail to do
so and people go ahead and fully trust "cloud" solutions over in house
solutions that are better managed.
And not only do those organizations have, or should have, the resources,
but they almost couldn't care less if you are inconvenienced.
'I was very frustrated': Gillian Triggs apologises for calling
politicians 'ill-informed', 'uneducated'
"After eight hours of questioning I was very frustrated that the
questions being asked indicated that the statute had not been read and
that our reports had not been read," she said. "To the extent that my
comments offended anybody, I regret them."
I still wait until someone apologizes to her for not reading the
reports and asking uneducated questions.
The "post-truth" is not confined to social media, it is what we are
used to for many years in politics and where we work. Entitlement
trumps facts, knowledge and skills.
I have the feeling we are reaching the point where the chicken come
home to roost.
