It’s sad, when I started in IT ( 30 years ago ), it was all about speed and coding efficiency. We would spend days figuring out the very best algorithm to accomplish a computation. We would spend weeks getting the user interface to be as smooth as silk.
With the advent of the internet it seems to now be ok for a site to be slow as molasses. Even the systems at my office are insanely slow, but when I complain I am told response times are “within specifications”. My question is always who’s specs!
I know the world is better because of the internet, but man people just have to speak up more about what they expect. It is one of the reasons I like this site, it is relatively quick and simple to navigate!
