Exactly the sort of thing I was thinking about.  I wonder how they
manage all the changes in technology that occur while they still need to
keep on using the same client data.  It's no wonder some places kept
using mainframes from twenty years past, that and their reliability.

Reminds me of the recent conversation I had with a friend about the scam
of bank account keeping fees.  These days they don't have scores of
people manually working through their files (for which they didn't used
to charge you fees), now they have an automated system that does it in a
blink of an eye (and they charge huges fees).
