(re: The Sierra Pest) Daniel:
Of course I remember you!
My brother John is working with a company (
) that does the software on gas pumps that allows them to display advertising while you buy gas. This didn’t sound very exciting to me until John explained that there are something like a billion transactions per day at gas pumps. Because gas pricing is so competitive, many gas stations make more money selling snacks than they do gasoline. It’s important for them to drive gas purchasers into the store. John’s company writes software that allows someone at corporate, for an entire chain of gas stations, to set what gets advertised. There’s a lot of cool features – but, it’s not games. I think John misses the old days of Sierra.
