Australian IT is Dead

Talk about a slow news day... the most exciting piece of journalism out of the Australian IT press this week appears to be an expired trial edition of ColdFusion on a Government web site. I mean seriously...

The evaluation license for this copy of Macromedia ColdFusion has expired.

Hard core investigative reporting uncovered this gem.

"We are talking to Macromedia about what it is, how it might have come about and how we can fix it," anonymous government spokesperson.

Does anyone out there believe this garble is newsworthy:

Even the headlines are corny. Worst of all it gets reported as a GLITCH in ColdFusion!

very sad that we're still subjected to "cat stuck up a tree" journalism

I'm just thankful they aren't still reporting on Delta Goodrum and Mark Phil....i can't spell his last name... breakup with Paris hilton....

I agree, SMH isn't too bad but the others are crap.. i remember the news story about how great FrontPage is and how you can make an entire intranet out of it.... they lost my respect after that.

Maybe we need a technote!
