UK Home Office: We will register thousands of deactivated firearms with no database


Re: They could start a joint venture with the drone registry

I was once an administrative contractor for ComputaCentre who managed BT's IT desktop infrastructure.

I was working in a Service Delivery Office when we were advised some HQ people were rewriting our scheduling system in Excel. At the time this meant single-user write access which was limiting given that we worked in teams of two. I pointed this out to both my manager and the visiting HQ lot but was told "yes it's something we're hoping to get around."

They got around the Excel issue by reducing the teams to one getting rid of the contractors... which was obviously always the plan. I was let go as part of a cost-cutting exercise shortly afterwards. Decent wage, nice people but massive lack of IT knowledge for a supposed IT company.
