I don’t need to say much; I will leave it to my favorite Smalltalk blogger. He doesn’t like analysts, doesn’t reply to comments from them, but he is consistently aggressive and pretty funny. So over to Mr Robertson’s latest post…
Those funny guys at Gartner sent me a link to a survey they wanted me to take. I figured it couldn’t hurt, so I clicked the link. Here’s what I got in Firefox:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error ‘80040e10′
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Too few parameters. Expected 1.
/survey/Include/SurveyUtility_inc.asp, line 307
So I tried it in IE, and it worked fine
James evidently doesn’t always join his own dots though; Gartner was just taking its own advice, as spoken to in his entry on “mumbling nonsense.”
