Just got a “card reader” and went through the steps to register my NHI card and run the tax software.
Something is wrong with the IT managers here. Something… is just seriously wrong with them.
They are just screwed up mentally!
“Petinum III, 128 Mb RAM” really !!! holy fricking shit!
People need to do checksum, download an unsigned package, create a proxy server, input port settings manually, run certificate test, insert smart card, validate, signup for password, get authorized, do an OS and browser test that fails!
The “new” updated Tax software fails if region settings is not “taiwan” since it doesn’t recognize “2021/05/04” as a valid date!!
Tax inquiry documents are downloaded as quickreport .qrp files.
Really??? Freaking Taiwanese IT heads! Are they nuts
This entire non-sense would be avoided if they hired proper programmers and software engineers, create a good, usable website. Input your ARC, passport and phone and you’re done. Get everything there. All govt services.
This article mentions some non-sense:
There’s no link I’ve found that actually allows you to do what they claim in that article!
No wonder Taiwan banking, healthcare, finance and edu IT infrastructure sucks!!
Maybe its the radiation from the old abandoned nuclear projects or the mountains everywhere… I don’t know. There has to be some explanation for this degree or ridiculousness that is Taiwan IT!!!
