Morning Ladies and Gentlemen
I am a computer. Pretty observant of me I know, but I am a very special computer.
I was destined to go into the remote parts of Australia and work for 5 years without a problem. Sites where there is 50 degree heat and rolling dust in the middle of summer and other locations where the surrounding area is flooded out for 6 – 8 weeks of the year. I was built to handle these conditions.
The destiny of me and 79 of my brothers and sisters has been smashed by the bureaucratic bumbling of a government department. In the wake of, dare I say, “incompetence”, the small Canberra based IT Company that purchased me with the expectation of delivering us to those communities is now faced with a serious problem.
12 months ago that company was flying high, multimillion dollar contract on the horizon and lots of people in the company working toward one goal – the betterment of the remote aboriginal communities. But isn’t 12 months a long time in business and here they are now, going into administration, letting staff go and the future looking pretty dismal.
I would like to find a decent home for my 79 siblings, myself and various other components that are the remains of an outstanding project. Another aboriginal project plagued by bureaucratic ineptitude, lackadaisical incompetence and no sense of urgency except for the departments own importance.
The remote communities are the real losers in this whole circumstance but I would like to ensure that some of the loses are recovered for my company.
Please purchase me and give me and my siblings a home. I am worth $1500.00 Inc GST (Very close to cost price).
