Government Chinese Proficiency Web Test practice page not working....

Postby Taiwan_Student » 04 Jul 2012, 16:16

Is this truly a case of the government not getting any thing right or do I have the wrong browser and add ons...

I'm using Firefox. Windows 7. The audio is not playing. As usual, the instructions are not clear and there is no clear help page. It seems like a great site if I could just get it to work...

Typical government incompetence. When a Taiwan gov't site doesn't work, fall back to IE, since that's usually all any government webmaster thinks to design anything for. But even that won't completely save that site, e.g.:

The answer for question (1). is 3
Your have answered option 3.

You have corrected answered 1 questions in the last part.

I'm no psychologist, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that a guy who calls himself King James and has his initials and "Vivat Rex" -- Latin for "Long live the king" -- on his custom-made Nike jacket, and has CHOSEN 1 tattooed across his back and WITNESS tattooed on one calf and HISTORY on the other calf might have a big ego. It is an ego borne of insecurity, and this is why he left for Miami in the first place: He wanted things to be easier. He wanted Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh at his side and South Beach a short drive away. That is the fundamental disconnect between James and Cleveland fans. They gave up on easy a long time ago.
