It was nice to see some more faces behind the nick names and talk to the people. At the end of the conference we collected the notes from the feedback wall. I've posted the 'dislike' items already, the other will follow soon. Obviously some are not serious. But some of them are. Please look over them and comment.
On sunday morning I had a nice experience with this ATM in belgium. I inserted my card and it could not read it. I've tried again and this time a dos-terminal came to front with '8' digits printed in a loop. Then it rebooted.
After it came up again. Playing the window login sounds etc. The startup was horrible. They tried to cover some scripts that were running in two dos-windows with a fullscreen picture that they periodically forced to be on top. It failed and flickered. Then the application was started and it prompted to insert the card. So far so good, if only my card wouldn't be still in there. I pressed 'cancel' and behold! It rebooted again. Wow! Btw. the manufacturer is Diebold - yes the ones that also make the oh-so-secure voting machines. To cut the story, I was using my N800 to surf to my banks homepage, call them and lock my card. They also said that quite likely the bank will sent to card to my bank and hey in turn to me.
I really wonder why someone uses windows for an atm. you can't lock it down and it costs money. Next question is why the bank pays so little interest in the actual configuration and application. the diebold setup is horribly unprofessional. Guys mind the fortis atm for now.
