Somebody doesn't get the web

This is a real letter that was sent (yes, printed and sent, not emailed) to some of our friends who have a child at the school.

What I love about this is that the sender has clearly recognised that having to type in that long URL is going to be tedious and error prone so rather than providing a short link they have had the bright idea of providing a QR code. Now I have been in IT for 30 years and I don’t have a QR code reader on my phone so I do wonder how many others would.

This is what they should have done:

Oh and the link doesn’t actually work.
