#1 ...that has shuttered hundreds of Swedish supermarkets.

Why? Oh, that's right. You 'saved' so much money by doing away with clerks who knew the price of the products or stockers who put little price tags on everything for automated systems. The old system where just providing them hand calculators could keep the store open. Then again the item tracking would be lost and the automated books couldn't be run to pay taxes but require an accountant to do. However, now you are closed and in effect out of business.

Good IT practices are like a fire department. You usually don't need one but then its too late if don't have one.

#3 "how much would it cost to have the ruskya mafya to just whack you and be done with it?"

This is something I was wondering the other day. Nothing personal, just bidness. Governments are either constrained, useless, or in on the deal. Private contractors to the rescue!
