Ah, but then the landlord will insist it belongs to them, and then alone, and why should the tenant have any say in it? After all, we just sit in the building and supply them with rent....

As for cobbled software... after 3 suppliers' sales teams managed to bamboozle our HR department for a simple personnel management system (ie £10k for something that an NVQ student could have come up with in an hour or two), the powers that be finally let us write our own. Now I get paid the right amount on the right day and don't get phone calls asking why I'm not in 5 days into a holiday in the Med...

Sigh...
