It made me wonder what the ``you-can-set-your-watch-by-it'' airports in
Zurich or Geneva run. That brought to mind something told me by a friend
with a connection at CERN, cradle of the WWW, among other things:
apparently the Swiss banks are so conservative and fearful of change
(unless it rattles) that they are still each running a floor of old VAXen
as their IT backbone, and are still disinclined to change anything.
