    I completely agree @matt40k and actually I think I said that all though my Aspen tenure: while I understand it, I loathe the fact that you cannot make the system as good as it possibly could be because you have had to make it open to the rest of the market, and personally I don't feel that is fair. But then it was the same with Microsoft, they made the best products (lets not argue that point before anyone starts, I'm making a point) but forced to do things so others had a fair chance.

    End of the day, other providers a) need to step up to the mark in terms of making it equal or better, and these days there are one or two! And b) are actively selling in vast numbers, taking away just as many as you are gaining, as each MIS is different. I have always said, there is an MIS for every school, not necessarily the same one. One just fits better.

    I'll try and inject some levity :-)
    Will you completely reorganise the reason codes and give them names?
    SIMS cannot start : reason code Turnip.
    Unable to logon: reason - your father is a window dresser.

    That would make supporting it so much fun and the users might even smile too...

    Or even... give a useful reason, perhaps a possible way to fix the error... or is that too stupid?

    You just made some at Capita cry. They thought they're error messages were really useful
    Should I confess I was quite impressed how they got the error no, still I always wished they had a way to provide feedback and ideally a way to customize them.
