  • It's not even a nightmare. There is virtually no business to transact. The economy is dead and buried.

  • Worst nightmare? Really? That's why you are being given advance notice. Prepare accordingly. Anyways, some banks have had maintenance (and non maintenance) downtimes longer than that and guess what? The world didn't end.

    Maintenance is inevitable with any sufficiently large/complex system.

    I guess there's going to be a drop in EcoCash tithes this Sunday. Twabam!!

      • that may be their nightmare, but certainly not mine. The article starts off.. "Your worst nightmare is happening this weekend. .." Maybe it should read "Rural people, Your worst nightmare is happening this weekend. ..."
