That's very interesting information, thanks for sharing it.
Personally, I do not believe in coincidences. As crazy as it sounds, this is a real threat. If we're all "lucky", this will not happen. However....if it did....we don't have very many options for redress. This is the upsetting part about this whole scenario. We could riot, go nuts, burn down some banks, but the real criminals will have absconded with the loot and will be far away from the scene of the crime. Government and bank complicity would be essential, and that is the cruelest irony.
I have to ask, why did all the Brit banks need their 'computer maintenance' done during the first 5 days of the Cyprus raid? What have they 'prepped' the system to do? I am utterly computer illiterate...but even I had my suspicion radar triggered with this one.

Maybe if you'd read my posts property you'd understand why I sound, what you mistakenly see as envious. I dont live in the US where you can still use the excuse that not everyone wants property. Here in Europe its either rent or borrow and buy. We're on ATS i believe, and im not big enough of a fool to join the debt-slaves. So what options do I have left according to you? The excuse of people not wanting property holds no value over here, I WANT PROPERTY, but all of my income goes to living and rent, there is literally nothing left to save, resulting in me having to.borrow the money, as everyone else does, unless they can easily purchase property, which most do
Monopoly should stay a game, but its not anymore. I dont blame you for owning property, im not envious of the #that comes with it either, but if you honestly believe the people paying you rent do so because they dont want property of their own (you know, so they dont lose half their monthly income to some "generous" stranger like yoursef), I really dont know what to say. We pay rent, every goddamn month, and we'll hve to till the day we give in like the other suckers, and become debtslaves.
But no, im totally envious because of the # that comes with.owning property, I feel so sorry for the.fact you have to actually maintain the places that provide your income, others have it so easy you know, daytime job and all that costs zero effort!
The place we rent needs the roof fixed, you think the landlord bothers? Lmfao, "heres a couple numbers, get it fixed and send me the bill", well jolly, thank you good sir for paying for the repairs ON YOUR OWN GODDAMN HOUSE! Sorry, your complaints actually did piss me off and Im not ashamed of it either, some guts complaining about having to wash your dairy cows now and then :@

Who's to blame, the person or the bank? The bank isn't forcing it's services on you. You CHOOSE to sign on the dotted line. No one put a gun to your head and demanded you to do so. Render to Caesar what's Caesar's.

UPDATE: Another Dutch bank - Rabobank - is apparently having 'technical' issues now
Following yesterday's discussion of the brink-like nature of the Dutch economy (and banking system), it is perhaps just a coincidence that ING is suffering from a major failure in its Internet Banking. It is unclear how many customers are affected but judging by the scale of responses on Twitter (#ING) it is widespread. Some customers are reporting overdrafts, and incorrect balances; and are reporting cards not working at supermarkets. We are sure this will just bolster confidence in uninsured depositors at the bank - especially since, as Ad.nl reports, no one at ING was reachable for comment.
