    EB requires schools to buy old technology or submit heaps of dead trees to change it, good to see Govt. is spending HK$ 2 billion on innovation

    VHS, typewriters in govt's school shopping list - RTHK

    The quality of the civil service does seem to be declining over time.

    Often in bum-fuck third world countries many of these lists are tailor made to make sure a certain company wins the tenders. Not saying this would ever happen in HK.

    Have a GeoExpat related problem - please create a support ticket.

    I've worked with a lot of troglodyte teachers here who probably wouldn't have a problem with that.

    The current Inland Revenue Dept 56B software for employers returns looks like it was made on a BBC Micro computer from the 80's and yes it still requires you to submit on a Floppy Disc. Although to be fair in the past few years you can send in a DVD! Progress.
