Butlerian Jihad in Sabor Continues

Thursday's long-awaited first application of electronic voting system in Sabor ended as miserable failure. The system crashed, which led Speaker Zlatko Tomčić (Zlatko Tomcic) to say few uncharacteristically harsh words about technical staff and Siemens before announcing that the voting would have to take place by hand.

A day later it turned out that the reason for collapse of electronic system could be found in one man – MS who had forgotten to replace his old electronic key with a new one. He apparently tried to use it during the first vote and that led to collapse of an entire system. So, it took a single man to paralyse 300.000 € worth of equipment. This would provide inspiration for all future technophobes in Sabor.
