SOUNDS LIKE AN IRISH JOKE

By CBR Staff Writer

It sounds like an Irish joke, but it was on the TV service of Radio Telefis Eireann so it must be true – there’s this Dublin company you see, called Europlex Ltd, and it has developed a personal computer-based security system that is so-o-o good that IBM Europe has installed it to protect its Paris premises – and is in very good company too, because the Louvre museum has also got one in – but IBM UK wouldn’t touch the thing with a bargepole; nothing to do with any British-Irish sibling rivalry, you understand, simply that the thing only runs on an Epson Personalike.
