    Can anybody see any good news in this scenario? Or is it 'Last one out turn off the lights'? I do hope not.

    In reply to: ShareScene.com on Friday 05/12/08 05:20am Not many of us left now, I guess. Are you guys still living in hope? Personally, I've lost too much thus far to bale out, so have little hope other than watching developments and silently praying (facing the appropriate direction, of course). BTW, Compliments of the season to all. http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/king.gif

    QUOTE (Lizard @ Monday 18/08/08 06:42am) Hi, On a point of information. I note that you refer to 'Sid' on Hotcopper, Lizard. I post on HC (only rarely, and when I feel I have something to contribute) as Sunny Sid. One of my latest posts - about 4C and BQT at Farnborough Air Show, here in the UK - received some 850 hits (not showing off, just pointing out that 850 is a lot more than average for that BB). The 'Sid' you refer to, Lizard, is not me, of course, but Sidneybynight (not sure if I've spelled that correctly). Whilst I have no argument with Sidneybynight, who also refers to himself as 'Sid', I simply want to make it clear that we are two unconnected posters. Thanks for your time. BTW, for better or worse I still have a substantial holding in BQT. I hold with more hope than expectation, simply because I've been in for many years now. Personally, if I were a newbie, I don't think I'd risk any new money just yet.

    Sorry guys, I've no more idea than anyone else just what the hell is going on. But that big "sell" at 18c (just outside the five-most-likely-to-be-matched) sure does stand out don't it? You'll all know by now that the first UK biometric passports have now been issued. You may not know that BBC TV News today announced that biometric registration has been started at London Heathrow. Iris recognition, as well as fingerprint, was specifically mentioned. BTW do any of you guys use this site I've just discovered? http://www.getagraph.com/ It seems like a great facility from my point of view, desparate for Aus news, here in the UK.

    In reply to: wolverine on Tuesday 14/02/06 12:08pm Watcha, Wolvie, Well, I'm doing OK - for an old 'un - dunno about the rest http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/cool.gif Take your point about BQT, and must admit to feeling somewhat let down by all the hot air, but that is probably the nature of the beast. Probably, when they've nothing to say they should say nothing. But, of course, the punters want 'news' so the temptation is always there to spin it up a bit. Our Tony B and all his mates UK-side know a lot about that. Guess, as always, we shall just have to wait and see. Time will tell. Cheers mate. Be lucky.

    Sorry, something odd happened when I posted. Got a message something about 'Flood control' operating on this site [i thought you had a drought over there in Oz http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif ], and then the whole lot appeared twice, so I've knockd out the second copy. What IS going on? Bye for now. M http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gifhttp://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/cool.gif nshine

    Hi, I'm really surprised to see no BQT discussion on this board, particularly since the UK parliament passed the legislation enabling a biometric passport and ID card yesterday. BQT appeared to be in the pack for this, surely that warrants some slight shuffling of feet and a polite cough, if nothing else? This used to be a really great, polite and intelligent forum. Where have all the punters gone? I'd be interested to know how many of you were put off by an apparent 'interruption of service' on ShareScene over the past few weeks and months. I'm in the UK. I only watch BQT as it is the only OZ stock I hold, so I used to rely on the email notifications of new posts before logging-on. Some time before Christmas, I realised I had not received a notification for a very long time. I tried to access the site, but couldn't get in. Being busy, I simply didn't bother to keep trying... except perhaps every few weeks, always with the same negative result. A couple of weeks ago I became more determined, sent a couple of emails to SS and finally I'm back in. I still don't seem to be getting email notifications of new posts. But then again, there don't seem to be any new posts. There seems to be a healthy interest in BQT over on HC (OK, I'll wash my mouth out), why not here? What happened? Did some of us (perhaps a lot of us?) get wiped out during an upgrade? Anybody know? Bye for now.

    Hi, BQTeenies, I note with interest that the "...Directors are keen to see that the existing shareholders, many of whom have been long term investors, [are?] able to participate in the Company's future at an advantageous price."... but that to be an Eligible Member you have to be a resident of Australia or New Zealand. Great! But what about the really long-term holders here in the UK? We have stuck with BQT through thick and thin, some like me from the very early Banque-Tec days on the UK OFEX exchange. Seems to me like dumping on your hard-time mates just as the good times start to roll, but then again... I'm just another whinging Pom. [And, yes, before you start, I am Sunny Sid in another warmish conductive metallic place http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/cool.gif ]

    In reply to: J.Fo on Friday 16/09/05 10:27am Thanks for that, J.Fo, very interesting. The piece was dated 11/01/2005 and referrs to a one year programme of evaluation that commenced in November last year, for the US Department of Homeland Security. Given that BQT have been active in the States, is it not possible that they are also part of the same evaluation process? A contract to the value of $6m (US) was being discussed, that would be quite nice A year from November 2004? That would be just in time for Christmas... VERY nice http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif Oh, well... Dream on, I suppose.

    In reply to: wolverine on Monday 05/09/05 10:21am Wolvie, it sounds like, besides being droll and sardonic, you may also have very bad judgement... At least, when it comes to choosing revolutionary payment systems. M http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/laughingsmiley.gifhttp://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif nshine

    QUOTE (wolverine @ Sunday 04/09/05 10:48pm) Wotcha, wolvie, Very droll and sardonic comment, but missing the point. Those retailers employing the new technology and NOT having to 'handle' the current charge overhead (which is indeed eventually passed on to the consumer, as always) will gain one of two advantages: 1) They continue to charge at the rate the market currently expects - and pocket additional profit (for a while). 2) They pass on the savings and gain additional customers and turnover. If they do '1' they will soon be sussed out, when competitors take the other strategy and lower their prices. So, eventually, everyone WILL employ the new system, or commit commercial suicide (IMO).

    QUOTE (Lizard @ Sunday 04/09/05 10:16am) Yes, thanks, liz. Unfortunately, I can't afford those prices... yet! http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif I notice - following on from moomoo's and other posts - another (not-yet-trading?) business at the same address is: BRAND CARDS LIMITED Registered No. 03492577[ Status: Non-Trading ] QUATRO HOUSE FRIMLEY ROAD CAMBERLEY SURREY GU16 7ER GU16 7ER There certainly is a lot going on in Camberley!

Forgot Brand Cards already mentioned by Liz... Ignore (as ever?)

    For the record (another fog droplet?), recently found this Australian patent application: AU 772761 Transaction system Applicant: Nexus Corporation SA Class: G07F 007/08; G07C 009/00 Accepted: 6-May-2004 Priority: 2-Aug-1999 PCT: WO 99/36889 Abstract: A network transaction system including terminals and database servers which are adapted to issue transaction cards as well as to accept cards for subsequent transaction use. The cards include impersonal information, i.e. not including any personal information about the user, and the terminals are adapted to capture personal information directly from the user for verification purposes. The impersonal information on the card and the personal information of the user are discrete. Doesn't add a lot I know, but forms part of our knowledge base, I suppose.
