Named and Shamed...


Today is British Gas - aspx stack traces in their Central Heating insurance app.

A number of wtf's here:

  1. The most obvious - their app is broked :)
  2. Should have a custom 500 error page instead of a nasty stack trace
  3. They are using a crazy mix of cgi, jsp, java and aspx (check out the url on the home page: http://www.house.co.uk/cgi-bin/house/house/jsp/app/viewHomePageAction?BV_SessionID...)

Their site is back up again now. But then the layout on the 'HomeCare' page is a bit of a shocker... has a semi-liquid borders which resize the main part of the page to the browser width, but then static width content inside that, so gets chopped off.

I could go on for years finding faults in major companies websites :) And I probably will!
