Search - "bullshit wrappers"
I fucking hate asp.net web forms. Today we implemented listboxes, so we expected them to just be a wrapper for HTML listboxes. NOPE! They are simply selects. Why they decided to hijack the name and do this, I don't know. That does explain why they don't have multiple columns like true listboxes.
So glad that for the next project, which we should start by the end of May, we'll be moving to MVC and .Net core. This shit is so stupid!3
I think I found out why Cengage hasn't gotten back to me on their root-server issue: They're leased by next.tech (that's their name and URL) and it's literally an iframe from them inside like 7 Cengage iframe wrappers (which is also why it runs like ass apparently!)
next.tech supplies cengage with the actual heavy lifting, and cengage is literally a shitty wrapper for it.
