    Of the three lawyers whose professional services I have availed myself, two were excellent and reasonable in price.

    Getting back to technology, in the last few days we have had a couple of examples of the piutfalls of reliance on technology, especially "putting all your technology eggs in one basked".

    Firstly, a couple of days ago, a Telstra problem meant most ATMs and EFTPOS facilities Australia-wide stopped working for a large part of the day. Then yesterday the MyGov website fell in a heap for half the day.

    While this sort of thing has been happening forever, the effects of each of these incidents gets greater, as we become more reliant on them. This sort of event means that a fully cashless society is likely to be a dream (or nightmare?) for many years.
