Re: Website update
said by TSI Marc:That would be cool, if the website only tried to set it when unset and not actually use the province you've set. It appears to have a rather serious bug related to this: I punched in my home postal code (in Ontario Cogeco land), hit submit, and saw various cable internet offers, and thought hey, wow, TSI services Cogecoland now!
Edit: other cool new feature is that it will auto select you're province if you don't already have it set.
Sadly, it was not to be: the website had autodetected me as coming from Quebec (perhaps because I'm using internet over Telus Mobility right now, which is NAT with a public IP in Quebec?), and despite the fact that I entered an Ontario postal code, I got shown Quebec offerings. When I changed the website to Ontario, I go back to no cable offerings available.
So really, despite the extensive testing, it has a pretty major bug: it doesn't just set the currently selected province, it actually uses it for the results (despite the fact that the postal code uniquely identifies the province)! Thus, if I select Quebec, I can't look up service for Ontario postal codes, or (presumably) vice versa.
