Pet Peeve…

Look, I love the fact that we do get some of these over here… but really… I just saw a link to where you can order the VS 2005 Beta and Express Edition Product Betas on CD. (via LarkWare New’s entry “The Daily Grind 413“)

So I quickly click on it only to find that in the list of 96 countries, South Africa is not listed. 

Sometimes I don’t get the logic…  The USA can order or download (and they have the bandwidth to do it), but SA can’t order, and the downloads aren’t that viable an option either.  So the score is USA 2, SA 0.  Lovely. πŸ™

Is there anyone in SA who has downloaded them and is prepared to write them to CD? πŸ˜‰

I’ve also never actually thought about how the tests are ordered, well now I know, thanks πŸ™‚

I think the important thing is to make sure that the tests are all able to execute independent from each other. So the order in which they execute shouldn’t be important.

I think this also came up on the sa .net newsgroups. (I think that’s where I saw it) They specifically point out that the download etc is only available to the US and certain selected countries.
