    Functional Presto Card Readers

    Can't they at least upgrade to Windows Embedded 8.1 software instead? On a side note, be on the lookout for PRESTO units on New Eglinton territory. #7564 was the first installed (but yet to be in operation) on 86D this evening.

    2016 Summer Olympics Discussion

    This thread is for discussion in regards to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro including our Canadian participation. CANADA: - Canada defeated Brazil in both rugby matches. - In Women's soccer, Canada scored a 2-0 win over Australia and 3-1 over Zimbabwe. OTHER: - The United States defeated the People's Republic of China 119-62 in men's basketball. The Americans lead in the medal standings. NOTES: - In spite of the doping scandal, Russia sent 271 athletes since the track and field team is banned from the Olympics. - South Sudan and Kosovo made their Olympic debuts. South Sudan gained independence in 2011 while Kosovo granted independence in 2008, which however, is recognized by 109 UN members including Canada. - in a bizarre twist, Taiwan aka Republic of China competes as Chinese Taipei since 1984. The original China debuted in the 1932 Olympics. But due to the One-China policy, in which the PRC recognizes as the sole legitimate government of "China", ROC was forced to use the Chinese Taipei name.
