I'm not expecting any royalties for this idea, but:
WHY DON'T THEY JUST POST IT TO A F***ING WEBSITE???!!!
LOL!!!...at the risk of starting a shit storm...I've had the same problem with the manmade global warming idiots flying around the globe in their jets instead of just having a video conference.
Prolly just me though ;-)
I think they ought to mimeograph it.
I think Tyler may have got this one wrong.
They say it was a "KYOCERA"
Some guy with a Bow Tie sold it to them. They had to wait for a service call.
I'm going to vote for clay tablets and a stylus.
Much more permanent.
Plus, you need to hire and train all those scribes, so, increased employment.

"great greenspan's ghost!"
It got where it needed to go exactly on time (or a little earlier)... interesting that the Q's tanked exactly at 2:23.. must be some speed readers out there.
OK, though.. got my shorts on just before 3 pm.. and I won't be caught with my shorts down tomorrow.
paper is nicer; old money; rich. you can't eat an ipad.
TECHNOLOGY WILL SET US FREE`!
How much time has YOUR labor-saving technology saved YOU today?
Let the Congregation say "Amen."
Now that's some funny shit right there !
Could somebody please help me get this fucking computer to work before I eat the sonofabitch?
time to short them! :) hehehe
I immediately get flashback to an old copier commercial . .
"It's a Miracle!"
. .. as in, it's a miracle it isn't late more often -
it's a miracle the system works at all, for as long as it has.
I, heck, just write you own joke!
And these fucking jack asses are in charge????
Thanks, I think?
Don't forget the printer company found in more banks than any other brand and was once the former printer divsion of IBM....
LEX - KING
MARK - SiGNATURE
Apropo I think concerning the banks.
LEX = LAW. REX = KING.
CORRECT SIR !
This is why you shouldn't rdink nad ytpe ! Burp...
But the LAW of the KING works even better.
Tip of the highball glass to ya !
yeah, i work in the printer business; it was a lexmark; an old ibm company.
They had to call the help desk in India first....
Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Turn it off, wait 30 seconds and turn it back on again.
Don't even get me started with the "help desk." It would be ugly.
You should see the way the SEC handles a lot of their crap.
I just can't figure out where all the tax dollars go other than bombs.
The porn servers are actually onsite in the SEC building to decrease latency. Brilliant!
Why am I not surprised?
I know a fella that used to work in I.T. for a large investment firm in New York...he is now a VP of I.T. for The Federal Reserve (FRIT.FRB) and I can tell you they are waaaay behind the times...good thing they still have some "barbaric relics" hanging around?
Maybe the good folks at Anonymous simply aren't applying themselves...or maybe they are paid not too (Enter: Julian A$$ange).
The Elites don't need technology. They were fucking over the common man long before the iPad and e-mail.
what a cluster ...
Joke of the day: http://www.cnbc.com/id/44613160
Some old farts don't realize that things are changing for the worst.
Bove must be thinking of the Venezuelan B of A......We have a procedure in this country for banks that fail. It's called bankruptcy and the FDIC makes sure the deposits are covered (it will not "pull everyone down with it") and assets are sold to a new entity (ask Wilbur). This is the same bullshit argument fostered that lead to the Gov take-over of GM.....pure bullshit!!
So now Bove is an apologist for BAC??!!
Remember "Lehman was a generational buy"?
He was right.
It will take him a generation to live that 'buy call' down...
Like BAC is now....
yesterday morning on Boomberg, Bove did admit he was wrong in 2008. Coffee, meet new screen.
"Some old farts don't realize that things are changing for the worst."
THIS is what happens when you hire the CEO of a software company to run a hardware company!!
Q: How many programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Can't be done; it's a hardware problem.
mail -s 'lightbulb' email@example.com
Please change the lightbulb.
You should try it out. Flexible.
Programmers don't change lightbulbs. They write workarounds that obviate the need for light.
