For those who (like me) had no idea what ECI is..
Electronic Commerce Interface..
Thats that program that the ATO want you to use to lodge your BAS
When I asked why.. They said "Lack of Interest"..
so I asked.. "how did you gauge interest?"
And they said "from the number of enquiries we received"
Which IMHO is a pathetic way of working that out.. since most people are
pretty apathetic when it comes to unix/linux support.. and wouldn't even
have bothered asking.
Anyway.. I've been given a contact to send complaints to..
Now considering this app looks to be just a Java program, with a "Binary"
installer.. Why can't they just throw this open to a 3rd party to
build/support? Or even (shock horror).. Open Source..
Anyway.. get out your pens and write to :-
