National Rail oops

Oops. I have just tried to check out some train times on the National Rail website. Seems they have been doing some maintenance and deployed something slightly wrong to the live server. As soon as I try to enter the station I'm going from...


This makes it ever so slightly impossible to use the site.

Of course, anyone who's written a web app has done this at some time, but it's very reassuring to see one of the busiest sites in the UK making the same mistake. And the best thing is the smug feeling of knowing exactly what they have just done and why it happened. Maybe my web development days are not entirely behind me...
