Alternatively (and more usefully), any MeFites who are interested in this field and have something to offer can add their wares here and maybe make some bucks.

Interesting link, dg. Marketing and company development is expanding in crazy new ways, lately. This format is used in several other game type areas, such as Nuke Zone. You MeFi war hawks might enjoy that one.

You can't cLng() a Null. That's what you get for using VBScript.

It's what you get for using any language incorrectly.

Cute game. Has virtually nothing to do with decision making in an actual company of course.

Right? I put in random numbers. "Your ranking was 175 out of 226, Your learners satifaction was 10 out of 10, Your organisations satisfaction was 10 out of 10."

They like me! I'm a monkey punching in numbers!

I did the random numbers thing, too. but I got 202 out of 226, and everyone likes me too. Ook?

Well, since you ask, I blew all my cash on R&D and courseware development, spent nothing on support, and still got 9 out of 10 for learner and organizational satisfaction.

I build distance-learning software for a living, and personally think their numbers are wa-a-a-ay off base. But then again my real-life stats are probably nowhere near 9 out of 10.

The guy who runs this company gave a presentation to a seminar I am currently at and I was really impressed. For a self-proclaimed computer geek from the days when the IBM mainframe ruled the world, he has a great grasp on where and when on-line learning is appropriate.

When I saw that he had a directory of on-line learning tools, I thought it may be of use to some here. Should have known everyone would focus on the game instead :-)
