Submission + - World's slowest web transaction processing ( 1

neuroinf writes: "Here is marvellous Melbourne we have a wonderful new smart cart ticketing system for public transport. This article describes it: One of it's "features" is that it can take "up to 3 days" to process a purchase of a ticket using a credit card in a web transaction. In a world where even in it's farthest reaches people can move money from account to account in seconds, I wonder if this is the slowest web transaction processing of a purchase?"
