From an IT guy. "I'm a BofA IT worker and can tell you there is a large event going down this weekend.
They're implementing what they're calling the "October Release".
My understanding is that this is a software and systems upgrade which is somehow tied into the FED and their regulations.
If this is a Federal Reserve activity, that would explain why ALL banks and credit unions are involved. We've been on a change lockdown for the past week and threatened with our jobs if we snip anything up.

In all fairness banks use some of the most antiquated computer systems known to human kind for security purposes.
Windows are something that the banks order in bullet proof plexi-glass not to run their computers.
Their DOS based systems are wired to one another through secure land phone lines they don't even use T-1 lines for fear they could be breached.
They don't use wireless connections or networks for fear the information can be intercepted.
In fact most IT programers wouldn't have a clue how to work on a Bank's Computer system because they would have basically had to have a 1980's computer skill set geared to terminals not personal computers.
The banks are a little old fashioned when it comes to technology...
That alone should tell people something about the inherent dangers to convenient electronic technology we are all wired grid like into.
Yes that guy from Kenya went ahead and signed a National Emergency Decree placing us one pen stroke and one executive order away from Martial Law...
Let the Powers that Be make there next move and then for pity's sake people try to remember that you are Americans or read a book on it over the next couple days so you can act like Americans and human beings and show a little back bone and conviction and stand up and put a stop to this madness in Washington D.C.

You know, I'm starting to wonder now if this has anything to do with a credible threat against our financial sector's infrastructure. Meaning, I wonder if they've heard that our systems were in grave danger from attackers or something.
Has anyone heard or seen anything along those lines?
