On another note, I wonder why there's so much interest in this one? Do some BHs know things we don't?
Probably just that people have money burning a hole in their pockets after recent repayments, and aren't optimistic about anything else coming along so they though they might as well have a piece of this one, even if they are also thinking of offloading on the SM in a few months time, always assuming that the borrower hasn't already gone bust by then...
I don't get the enthusiasm, with all the current complaints about quality of security across platforms a loan mainly secured by a pending (ie, not yet and may never be in place) patent seems exceedingly weak. As a small punt the company doesn't seem too bad, although a lot of hype, and little substance.
I've been out of the IT game for 25 years now but for 2 years I sold Automated Testing Software. You basically ran "Scripts" which represented a User and you could run as many Scripts as you wanted, simultaneously of course. We sold our software to Share Trading Houses, Hotel and Airline Reservations, etc. The software also showed up "Regression", which is any negative changes to your systems caused when you introduce upgrades etc.
ISTM that perhaps no such testing was done, or if it was, it was left to "the Junior". Because Testing software & systems is an awfully boring job which all techies hate.
Exactly, it seems they've coded it to fail and require manual resubmission whenever a database transaction has occurred between page load and form submission. It should be possible to timestamp transactions and process them asynchronously while maintaining transaction order.
