SAS == SAAS - also complexity explained (Criticism)

In case anyone is confused, by SAS MacAddictXIV means Software as a Service. Another way of saying that is any software which is live all the time. Such software is in many ways much more complicated that regular software that gets released on a schedule.

Bahhh, I made the assumption that the "a" wasn't in the acronym :) I say SAAS, I don't spell it out!

I like taking a "simple" problem that everyone understands and looking at all the complexity that is actually hidden there. For example, how hard could it possibly be to add a form to capture somebody's name?

This is a very good example. As someone who actively works with a third part system of databases where data input is a huge thing. I have to figure out why someone would put a note about someones schedule in a birthday field on a common basis...
