Accenture sued over website redesign so bad it Hertz: Car hire biz demands $32m+ for 'defective' cyber-revamp

(www.theregister.co.uk)

Car rental giant Hertz is suing over a website redesign from hell. […] The US corporation hired monster management consultancy firm Accenture in August 2016 to completely revamp its online presence. The new site was due to go live in December 2017. But a failure to get on top of things led to a delay to January 2018, and then a second delay to April 2018 which was then also missed, we're told.

Reading this story, I’d really like to be hired by Hertz. Not only because they seem to have no qualms spending scads of cash for something that shouldn't cost millions, but because they’re clearly patient as hell.

Plausible, though difficult to prove which flight might have caused the damage 🤐

Blogroll – Colin Walker

This is an interesting idea. A different take on the Blog Roll concept from a decade ago. While I’m not interested in reading any of these sites, I am interested in the idea of the blog roll with a summary for each URL 🤔

Changing the time zone in Ubuntu Server

(stackoverflow.com)

I changed the time zone of my server (Ubuntu 12.04) to UTC via:

echo 'UTC' > /etc/timezone
dpkg-reconfigure —frontend noninteractive tzdata

When running date, I can see the time is now in UTC. However, on /var/log/syslog, it still displays the time with the previous setup timezone and not UTC. Why? How to make it take effect on the whole system? Reboot?
