    The Wirral data? - I thought everyone knew. Again way back in 2011 - do you remember the SIMS training data suddenly got issued again for an 'update'? Well if you wander back into the Training data from before the update you will notice that a whole load of records from the Wirral got quietly deleted from the data. If you then look up the children using the internet you will see they were quietly deleted because it was live data on real children that was issued - I think from about 2009 - and not noticed. The really embarrassing part about that was that a lot of training providers had built in and included that data in their packages, and someone from the Wirral happened to be on one of the courses and thought that the data looked a wee bit familiar.

    They are not the only supplier to have used live data in training / marketing materials!

    SIMS is like a two bedroom house, perfectly functional for what it does but the house builders seem to keep revisiting the house and wanting to try adding a conservatory, landscaping the garden and potting about in the shed. Stick to building the houses thanks.

    To me it's more like a dromedary trying to grow a second hump.
    I think I've been in the sandpit too long.

    Nothing wrong with that in principle. The problem Capita have is that they employ cheap builders to do the extension and then wait for the person renting the house to tell them that the roof leaks.
