I hate the IBM website 08 Sep, 2003
Absolute cack. The IBM website contains a wealth of useful information. Unfortunately it's all buried beneath pointless circular re-directs, oblique references, stupid pop-up surveys (Them: "Hey! How are we doing?" Me: "Your site is crap" Them: "OK, let me ask you that again next time you come here…")
I've just been there looking for something pretty simple. But I cannot bloody find it. I downloaded the Java APIs for Websphere MQ a few weeks back. It took a while. And now I wish I'd kept the URL, 'cause I need some documentation, and using the "library" sections of developerWorks is starting to hurt.
Sorry, had to get this off of my chest. I've been whingeing about IBM's site for a while (occasionally here in asides). And nothing never seems to change. Maybe it's just me… Anyway, I'll keep you posted if I ever find anything. You're interested in Websphere MQ right?
Additional rant: and why the hell do I have to fill in the same old "please tell us about yourself / your project" survey for every other download?!?! GOD ALMIGHTY!!! Ahem.
