I gave up on VAMS, i.e., the U.S. Federal Government ‘Vaccine Administration Management System’, within 5-minutes of logging on, earlier this week, when it could not get me a vaccination appointment outside of 6-weeks. I could tell, even on first use, that VAMS was struggling.
Then today our Governor, Chris Sununu, said that VAMS is FLAWED & that New Hampshire will develop its own system! Pigs will fly.
This is another SCAM. The U.S. Government getting scammed by unscrupulous companies & INSIDE officials.
The U.S. has ALL of the world’s leading software companies! The U.S. knows how to create software.
But, Federal INSIDERS scam US the tax payers. They give contracts out to their ‘friends’. SMILE. We end up with useless software.
This needs to be looked into.

MANDATORY field. You have to click one or the other, and after that it will NOT accept ‘0’.
This is so frigging patheetic — even by D.C. standards.
This is what happens when you have software written by crackheads — and from what I can see, most of today’s programmers are ON DRUGS!
This should be a 5-minute fix and 4 of those would be for TESTING. I know. I was a high-flying programmer for 20-years, and was HIRED as a programmer by IBM in 1973 (when they had very high-standards (and after they made me take 3 IQ tests).
How can YOU? So trivial.
What amazes me is that it wasn’t fixed. So easy.
‘Stuart Highlanders’ (Bedford, MA) Appears To Be The Featured Pipe Band At The 2015 ‘NH Highland Games’ In Loon

>> ‘Red Hot Chilli Pipers‘, Loon, 2015.
The featured pipe band at the 2015 (Scottish) “Highland Games” at Loon appears to the ‘Stuart Highlanders‘ from Bedford, MA — though I could be wrong on this. They are one of the few bands named in the program.
I looked them up — and their name is vaguley familiar. I am sure they have been at Loon before. BUT it appears that they have at least 3 bands. One is a Grade 1 Band! Their Website, though quite nice, seems to be woefully out-of-date. The last news item is from August 2012. So it is possible that they no longer have a Grade 1 — and it is even conceivable that they have even more bands. So not sure which of these bands will be appearing. IF it is a Grade 1 band that would be special and much appreciated — at least by ME. I don’t think we have had a Grade 1 pipe band in a LONG TIME. Maybe a decade. So this would be something to look forward to.
Here is a link that will get you to the ‘tentative’ 2015 Highland Games schedule — and they better finalize this fast since we are now within a fortnight of the Games starting.
