Re: Come on IBM..
You beat me to it - an intellectually bankrupt business, allowing the intellectually-challenged to air their ignorance for one and all to see. Two great examples from the UK this week. Yes, David Cameron, I'm including YOU in this one ...
User's accounts ...
They have only one user now?
Well, let's think, shall we?
The obvious things, like malicious complaints about people we don't like (or who "don't look/think/act like us"); the usual IT-based cock-ups, producing false trails/leads which have to be investigated; cost over-runs as the mega-specification provides the usual suspects with the excuse to up the budget for "unforeseen circumstances" - the list is endless.
Here's an idea - immigration control could check people's passports when they LEAVE the country as well as when they ARRIVE. That way, the UKBA would actually know how many "illegals" there are here instead of just guessing and going through this kind of silly charade where we're all encouraged to snitch on each other and be subject to constant surveillance ... or perhaps that's really what "they" want?
You're quite right ...
"How will you do it, might I enquire to ask?"
"I will do it with my spear and magic helmet!"
They don't write 'em like that any more ...
Nice picture, but ...
... to echo the comment by "Compound Eye" on Flickr:
It'd be nice if you had an image with the US, Europe, Asia going left to right - that way, even allowing for curvature, far more people would be able to gain a sense of enjoyment / pride from what they saw... There are other countries in the World besides the USA, not that the 96% of Americans without passports would care.
Not THAT bank ...
Think you'll find it's Sberbank ... not sure how you managed to come up with fberbank ...
