Four billion served

I installed all the latest MS patches to the server lately… They've been pumping out a lot of them lately, making the questionable claim that MS products are becoming more secure than their UNIX competitors. Other than that I'll probably wash the cars today (very dirty!) and do the image update.

You may be interested/amused to hear that Baghdad Burger King, located in the airport, cooks over 5,000 burgers a day and has climbed into the top 10 of all BK franchises in the world (more). Two interesting bits of trivia about it:

  • In order to save costs, BK Iraq imports cheap workers from Sri Lanka, the Philippines, and Nepal. They sleep in bunk beds in a housing unit right behind the joint.
  • All prices are US cash-only, but you don't get change back — you get coupons that can be exchanged for stuff like t-shirts reading “Who's Your Baghdaddy?” (you know you want that shirt).

Other than that I see that four billion dollars — eighty percent of the money spent by CPA in Iraq so far (more) — can't be accounted for. That seems to me to be an unacceptable rate of loss… If it was me calling the shots I'd be very uncomfortable with anything over 5% I think.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
