The Royal Bank of Canada seems to have lost several days worth of transactions. It did have to do with computer software and at this point I understand it did have something to do with sequencing.
The have 155 people working on fixing the problem during the day, and 90 overnight. This is, of course, stupid - you can't possibly have more than three or four people working on a single problem at a time. So, you have four people trying to fix the problem, and over a hundred running around like decapitated chickens, making a lot of noise and getting in the way.
Unless, that is, they are manually typing the in the transactions - in which case 155 isn't close to enough.
Anyway, someone's getting the tee shirt again.
