Forwarded from: Thomas Roy Garner <trgarneat_private> Your article regarding eye scanners reminds me of the eye scanner we use @ work. Now, remember, this only applies to the eye-scanner we use, other systems may differ: Drink caffeine or sugar drinks prior to using our eye scanner, you can be perfectly still, yet the response is often "contact security manager" or "moved to much". This is usually fun around 0700 or 0800, when just about everyone has had their 1st or 2nd cup of coffee or soda! Frustration of personnel using device, to simply NOT use the device, after all, if I can ring the door and the personnel on the inside, let me in, why use the scanner in the first place? Longer lines (goes under frustration), b/c some people are just screwed @ the door, when it comes to scanning the eye, it can take as many as 10 attempts, to get in to the door, before giving up and ringing the bell. This causes a back-log of personnel, standing waiting their turn, which creates another hazard... Time/date stamp, slips in time, it cannot keep the time after about one month. Y2K problem, one would think we had heard the LAST of this, but guess what? 2002, does not appear as 02 or 2002, it's way back in time, and I cannot set the date past 1999. Now, I have nothing against this device, however, many people will soon discover, as these devices proliferate that their "coolness" or "007-bond-esque appearance", will quickly diminish, as they stand their shifting their bodies into rather unusual positions, just to get the scanner to work! :) - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
