I'm not sure if our site was developed by the same group covered in the story, but I am a teacher and I logged in this weekend to view my paycheck. I was given an error message which stated that the system was only available 8-8 Monday -Friday and 8-4 on Saturday! What is the point of developing an online system with standard business hours?! How asinine!

Mayor Bloomberg should be on the stand for lots of criminal trials or maybe in the hot seat for such trials.
And as far as this time-management upgrade thing goes ( or whatever it's called) I'm sure these are pals of the mayor and the whole thing was set up for them to rip off the city for billions of bucks. As was the "gentrification" of the Bx has put tons of city tax payers bucks in the pockets of developers. We all know the mayor has lots of developer pals. What or whoever he doesn't buy, he sees to it that the city buys it!
