Submission + - World's slowest web transaction processing (theage.com.au) 1

neuroinf writes: "Here is marvellous Melbourne we have a wonderful new smart cart ticketing system for public transport. This article describes it: http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/society-and-culture/myki-disaster-from-touch-on-to-touch-off-20130102-2c5j6.html 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?"
