all frigging morning! (work rant)

Dear L, I understand our library should have access to this journal electronically. Can you advise? Shona

Dear Shona, Go to the publishers site, select register and enter these numbers. L.

So of I amble to the publishers site and spend all bloody morning looking for "register" or anything vaguely similar. It's not there.

We already acces other titles by that publisher so I log into the site using our admin password. It recognises it, takes me to this page where I can view our subscriptions but not add one. The help page sucks, the site map is next to useless and every time I think I'm getting somewhere with it I keep getting the damn message "Can't find what you're looking for? Watch our Flash demo!". No, I can't find what I'm looking for, I've watched your "Flash demo" (and let me just say right now I hate Flash - it's lazy coding and it's annoying as hell) and it tells me nothing!!!!!!

All bloody morning I've sat here going round and round this one crappy site which keeps going on about "Universal availabilty" and it's bloody "Flash demo" and I'm sick of it. 'L' is no help at all and the boss decided wouldn't it be fun to take the day off and leave me to deal with it. Gah.
