This is the stuff that drive me nuts.
Credit Union Central of B.C. merged with Ontario Central to form Central 1. Here is something from their homepage:
When the merger took effect on July 1, 2008, the combined organization had more than $7.5 billion in assets, with 475 employees based at offices in Vancouver and Mississauga serving nearly 200 credit unions with some 2.8 million members
Good stuff. But when I click on the following
I get this message:

That means Safari, Camino and Firefox don’t work. If you have a Mac good luck.
You would think an organization this size would create web pages that wouldn’t have to have Microsoft as the only company that could produce a browser to use the site. Yep $7.5 billion in assets with all those employees (who never use Macs) serving 200 CUs with some 2.8 million members (who never use Macs). I thought those days were over. The ones where you had to get Microsoft tattooed somewhere to get a job. There must be a good reason, right?

I guess they should change their tag line to “….serving 199 CUs….”
