Sydney Sun Telegraph Website Humor

Need a chuckle today? I was online looking at a newspaper from Sydney, NE called the Sun Telegraph. They have some pretty good writing, but their IT budget could use a shot in the arm.

If you open their “place a classified” link in their sidebar you get the form depicted to the left.

The staff must not have the greatest confidence in their web developer because in giant black bold letters the words “THIS FORM MAY NOT WORK. PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE” were hacked into the HTML section of the page.

I am sure they don’t get a ton of advertisements placed online, but seriously an onine form is so easy and inexpensive to fix there is no excuse for this.

So for all of you out there who are excited to place your classifoied ads in rural Nebraska, make sure you call the Sun Telegraph’s office AFTER you fill out the online form to confimr their IT people did in fact get it right 🙂

    I find so many of this type of thing here in Ireland. there is a local radio station that I listen to online – their website is really bad – but their radio is very good.

    I have have often thought of calling them and explaining to them all the money they are missing out on – and then I think I wold end up having to find another station to listen to.
