Re: Backups and redundancy, FFS

Last encountered a carbon paper credit card machine 2 or 3 years ago .. had taken my son to a fencing torunament at Birmingham University and was buying some equipement for him from Leon Paul stand there ... they had (doubtless from past experience) brought the manual carbon paper machines as there was no chance of modern electroniic machines getting the required mobile signal needed to authorise payments from the middle of the lower floor of the large concrete wall/floored sports centre!
