I don’t ask for much from Troppodillians (well apart except from jobs, business advice, money and subjects for experiments).
As part of my requirements for a unit on Software Quality & Measurement at UWA, I’ve developed two different procedures for calculating monthly mortgage repayments. Now I need to trial them on various people and see how well they perform (or how badly).
Since power corrupts, and admin privileges corrupt absolutely, I thought I would ask for volunteers from the Troppo audience to take part in my experiment.
It is quite simple and should take no longer than a few minutes for most Troppo readers. In return you receive my undying (but anonymised) gratitude and a promise to report on the fascinating findings in a few weeks time.
To take part, follow this link.
Update: some people have trouble downloading the file with Acrobat saying “The file is damaged and cannot be repaired.” This seems to happen in Firefox but not IE.
Workarounds: you can right-click and “Save As”, or use Internet Explorer.
I’m not sure why this is happening, but I’ll look into it.
I should also note that I don’t need you to fish out your own mortgage details — numbers are provided for you to crunch.
