Jan asks:

> then why is it still on the site if it is so "last year"?

I was sent a URL setting out the details of a job I would have loved, with 
the closing date for applications at the end of December. I bookmarked it 
and got on with other things. Just before Christmas I put the application 
together and checked the URL again just to make sure I had covered 
everything they wanted.

Something made me scroll down to the bottom of the page, past a whole lot 
of stuff that had nothing to do with the job or the employer. In a list of 
possibly related sites there was a link to an updated version of the page 
which was identical except that it had a different URL and said that the 
closing date was really November 30.

I was not pleased. The boss at the employer is not answering my emails 
expressing my surprise and disappointment.

Is it really that hard to make web sites useful?
