Updating a PWA to include a Net Promoter Score input. I had no idea what a NPS was, so I'm educating myself with the help of Wikipedia. Apparently it's a market research metric used to predict business growth. It's a proprietary instrument (whatever that means) and there is a registered NPS trademark. It is also favoured by business types and criticised by academics who question its reliability as a tool to predict business growth. Hmm.

Fixing bugs that only appear in the development environment because the error reporting is verbose. There must have been a change to the error reporting levels on the development server since this code was last worked on.
