Government redefining the term "beta"
at 08:15 16 Sep 2020

I enjoyed discovering this morning that the term "beta" had changed in relation to the software development life cycle.

"But the government now says "beta" is a standard labelling practice for a digital service that is fully operational, and that it has reassured industry that Smart Freight will be operational by December"

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-54172222

This is just outright false.

If they'd have left out the term "fully" you could have almost got away with it. But they just had to lay it on thick.

For those unaware, a system in "beta" is usually (but not always) functionally complete but has not been thoroughly bug tested or user tested.

The standard practice for something like this might involve giving the logistics industry limited access months before it has to be used in anger so they can spot bugs or just general issues with it.

I imagine what is going on here is they are saying it's fully functional now and hoping nothing goes wrong in the "beta" which isn't a beta. Then if anything does go wrong they can say "oh it was just in beta, these things were expected".

Handing out masks in Huntington Beach
at 09:29 15 Jul 2020



I'm not sure who my favourite person was there. I think maybe the girls who said they had masks in their bags, and 5 seconds later said they'd left them in the car.

I did not realise there had been loads of those Government debunking blogs
at 10:07 19 May 2020

I remember the one about the Sunday Times story that blew up, but didn't realise they have actually been doing this about quite a few stories, even from regional papers.



Not really too sure how I feel about it.

Anyone got any stupid panic buying stories then?
at 08:49 20 Mar 2020

My sister told me last night a friend of hers called her in tears.

Went to a bunch of shops, couldn't find baby milk. Finally saw one but just as she got there an old couple picked it up.

She asked whether that was for a child, and they said it wasn't, but they wanted to make sure they had some milk for their tea.

They refused to let her have it.
