    Maybe they need to upgrade to the latest version of Visual Basic...

    The Obama administration Sunday said it’s called on “the best and brightest” tech experts from both government and the private sector to help fix the troubled website at the root of the Obamacare enrollment problems.

    The unusual Sunday 600-word blog post from HHS was the first update in more than a week on the many failings of an expensive website that HHS itself described as “frustrating for many Americans.” But it didn’t specify who the administration had called in, or when the American people would see clear-cut results on Healthcare.gov.


    They're really in trouble now!!!


    May the FORCE be with you!

    Suggestions:

    ObamaCare; the Movie - hilarious saga of overpaid and under skilled Federal government systems designers gone wild.

    The ObamaCare Family - funny sitcom about the flubs, blunders, and misadventures of a family of wannabe Federal government tech geeks.

    And last but not least, how about a regular ObamaCare segment on SNL!

    And oBAMA has no one to blame (but I'm sure he'll try) but himself and his people.

    They did all they could to keep the specs secret so nothing could be leaked and
    work was delayed because of this political call. This is POTUS's fault, pure and simple.

    But since it's never Lord oBAMA's fault, others will pay.

    The system was clearly not tested enough and not ready. It should have been delayed.

    And you Libtards want to give control of this to people like oBAMA and his crew.

    The textbook example of the GIGO principle; garbage in, garbage out.

    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner...andrew-johnson
    (snip)

    From the sluggish websites [Poor systems design] to garbled enrollment information, [Poor programming] the flaws require the extensive rewriting of code: “One specialist said that as many as five million lines of software code may need to be rewritten before the Web site runs properly,” the Times reports — that’s out of a total of approximately 500 million lines of code, according to another expert.

    (snip)
    First, it was improbably excessive volume because of ACA's "popularity". And now it's the problem of bad code "glitches". Adding capacity (whatever that entails) didn't solve anything. And tweaking the code won't either. One hundred foot tall oak trees don't spring from an acorn overnight.

    A successful system starts with careful and considered concept, then planning, and then several iterations of design before the first keystroke of programming even begins. Then the code gets tested. And tested. And tested.

    In a very large system, this is a process that is repeated for each identifiable segment that was laid out in the concept/planning stage. Each segment's interface is tested with the other segments. When everything is put together, the entire system is tested for everything from misspellings on input to error handling using scripts with almost as much design effort as went into the system.

    It ain't simple or easy. Even an acorn is smarter than this administration.

    Isn't this the point where the VW Bug painted in garish colors comes zooming out of the Best Buy warehouse garage, aimed for the Washington Beltway?

    Piloted by a maniacal, raving pocket-protector-wearing, white-shirt-with-two-pockets-adorning, pencil-necked geek with high water pants and white socks and his tool box, this vehicle screams up to a whopping 65 mph (a governor keeps it from going faster) and, foot firmly in the carburetor, has the techno blasting on the radio while heading toward his Rendezvous With Destiny...
