Just back from the accountant and post office. I received my password for online banking so that hopefully we can get GIRO online. It is amazing how some of the banks have the most archaic GIRO facilities. One of the banks has GIRO information that they openly tell you will likely crash your computer if you use any operating system above Windows ME, and that may or may not save your data. Considering that most of the world has upgraded from Windows ME quite a while ago, this would seem to be a problem.
Also, when we tried to submit the data, no one could seem to agree on what to submit, so we gave up and tried another bank. Crossing fingers that the new bank has better facilities (the other welfare groups suggested they do). I'll find out soon!
