| claim by yourself and Mr Foster, that ATMs are /more/ secure.
_I_ have _never_ made such a claim.
(Colm can speak for himself.)
please provide a reference in support of the above
claim about ATMs. URL for preference.
I consider the above claim that I claim that
about ATMs a blatant and outrageous lie.
but it _may_not_ be deliberate!....
my best guess is this is an well-intended albeit
misleading inference from something someone else
said (Colm, presumably), with which there is
reason to think I agreed, and that therefore I
also agreed with every last detail the other
person said, claimed, or implied.
that's like saying I agree with B.Liar, PM,
just because I lived in Britain at the time
he was first elected PM. he wasn't Tory was
perhaps the point most people agreed with ....
(and NO, I am not trying to start a political
debate. this is an analogy.)
incidentally, just because I am objecting to the claim
of a claim does not mean I concur with Bryan's apparent
belief ATMs are insecure _for_the_reasons_Bryan_stated_.
maybe I do, maybe I don't, but I will not say in this
ILUG posting because this part of the many issues has
nothing to do with Linux (AFAIK).
in any case, annoyed at this twisting of what
has been said,
p.s. and I was trying so hard to stay _out_ of
all the recent silly ILUG debates .... ;-(
