Tried to register for the 70-300 (Analyzing Requirements and Defining Microsoft .NET Solution Architectures) exam today. I called up Prometric and the lady on the line said that things were running terribly slow on their system. On Tuesday when I called last the other lady on the phone told me that the system was responding slow ever since they upgraded to the new system.
Now, if I get in the testing center today I'll be treated with a poorly designed app written in what looks like VB3 (could also be VB4. The bold text on the buttons is what gives it away) and uses 12pt arial font that is just plain difficult to read. I was taking a practice test for the XML Web Service from MeasureUp that in addition to being a kinda clunky interface, also runs pretty slow.
If I was in the position of evaluating people that are looking to prove their proficiencies in cutting edge technologies, I would feel silly with these interfaces.
I'm just kinda bored sitting here waiting for Prometrics servers to reboot I guess...
