Earn TRILLIONS improvinmg Axapta´s user interface


I´m not a specialist, but I´m a daily victim. If you out there want a good way to start earning money, just make a way to improve MS Axapta´s GUI.

And the "consultants" I see everyday just say "this is the normal behavior in Axapta".

I find it really funny to drop down a menu to choose a name (say contacts) and as I see names, the program puts a code where the name was chosen and the real name at the side.

I hate this "normal way"...

Don´t you know about anybody out there improving this?

Perhaps my boss could buy something from them.

as I know there´s "picky" people around...sorry about "improvinmg".

I think "hate driven writing" is not good for my english...

and yes, please improve Axapta´s GUI and make money doing it.

Yeah it does look pretty awful. Kind of like it was written ten years ago and then never changed.

I suspect that a new version of this wouldn't be worth trillions (unless you mean Turkish Lira), but a few million (USD) perhaps.

I watched a demo on their website. And when it finished, it closed the browser. I guess they'd decided I'd seen enough...

I notice it's *earn* trillions, not *get paid* trillions.

If you want to earn trillions in Turkish Liras you better do it soon. At the end of the year the Turks are dropping 6 zeros off the end of their currency. A millionaire one days, a uni-naire the next.

Hmmmm, I just found this fresh exchange rate:

1.00 TRL  =  0.000000683750 USD 

so it could be true. The notes must now be in huge denominations and it looks like it's taken the Turks almost a full century to finalise the effects of last century's so-called World War 1.

I don't recall the Turkish Lira being so low in 1975. WTF happened?

Historical aside: The French exchanged 100 old francs for 1 new franc after WWII and the Germans went drastic on the Weimar Mark beforehand 

Personal aside: when I was a kid in Oz 3d (three pence = 2.5 cents) would buy a big feed of chips - nowadays you fork out 2 dollars or more. That's a 80-fold increase in 50 years. Looking at the the "money halves in seven years" rule of thumb, 50 ~ 7*7 and 2^7=128. Now 128*2.5 = 320 cents = $3.20  either:-

1) chips are cheaper (globalisation) or
2) I haven't bought chips recently or
3) portions are smaller or
4) inflation's been running slower than 10% pa or
5) my memory is fading

It could be a mix, however I do feel the current low interest rate regime in those economies lucky or clever enough to sustain them over a long period of time do nothing to educate the young and trusting to the consequences of bigbad interest rate hikes (the above calcs subsume a couple of years where inflation approached 20% p/a)

So if you are maxed out on sums done on a low interest rate, quake in your boots, grin and wait because the fun has just started.

Hint: redo the sums on say 10% p/a and see how you go,

Decades of politicians who found it easier to print up more money than to fix the economy.

We hit the rock bottom couple of years ago and surrendered to IMF. Funny, now that the inflation is under control(~10%), we are printing more "new" money to celebrate it. :)

The Western industrialised nations that I know anything about (which doesn't include Oz) have all been running sub-5% inflation for the last twenty years. The UK had a big spell of serious inflation in the seventies, but its been well under 5% since. I would think that accounts for much of the difference.
