You may have heard about the new Lotto ticket checkers that are going in around the country that allow customers to check their own tickets. Well I'm involved in the project so if you're in the greater Wellington area and you see a short red head guy with a big sod off drill drilling holes in the counter then that's me. If it's a middle age guy with grey hair then that isn't me.
Anyhow, one thing I've noticed during this project as well as the numerous office moves I've had to do in my career is that people are pathetic when it comes to future proofing, in fact I seriously believe future proofing never enters their heads when they build something. What it means is that I have to endure architectural idiocy on a daily basis.
I hate architects because they design for the sake of design as opposed to practicality but there are things they could do that would bring them into my good books. Take for example the mess I have to endure with the Lotto project.
