Personal note: Since I have little strength in the socio-economic realm, I’ll pursue the issues with this project from a technological standpoint. 1) I hope that we (taxpayers) didn’t spend a lot of money to produce a website that was written in Microsoft’s ASP, which looks like a kindergartener designed it. 2) Knowing that if that modeling system was written in PHP, that would have taken about 2 weeks maximum to pull off, I truly hope it wasn’t similar to the FBI 4 year scenario for their piece of software mentioned here.
