  2. 2. I have seen many websites, those that belong to banks, gov, big companies commit unforgivable mistakes (blunders) ... some of them are here for you to wring your hands or laugh at them On most of the occassions, I have sent a feedback, only to be told “Use IE, not firefox” Hence this slideshow.
  3. 3. They wanted to go high tech and use AJAX but screwed up. Cheap contract outsource job, maybe? https://services2.hdb.gov.sg/webapp/BC31ISOP/BC31SController?hidPageClearAction=1&action And can you tell me what the error message means? It says “Explore does not support” What language is this?

  8. 9. Notice the row of 12 checkboxes?
