Missing the point of the internet

I was shocked to see that I can’t use my graduate school’s online registration system at night!
Web services are available from 9AM to 7PM.

I mean it probably took extra programming to make a website not work at night!


def displaypage:
--if time>7PM and time<9AM:
----display_website_closed_for_some_reason_message()
--else:
----display_registration()

    The system probably uses data from a legacy mainframe application and it has to be down for backup. I’ve had to write pages exactly like this. I didn’t like it but I didn’t have a choice.
