AUTOMATED STELLAR MACHINES -- PRESS RELEASE
November 19, 2007
Ever wanted to take a trip to the planet Pluto, but decided against it because there was no way to access your bank account when you got there? Put those fears away, because I will HOOK YOU UP! I will be placing an ATM on the planet Pluto. Guaranteed 99% uptime!
Due to the propagation delay and the relative location of Pluto, transactions will take at least 7.8 earth hours to authorize, and at most 13.7 hours when Pluto is at solar aphelion. But there will be no communication errors, thanks to my in-house developed, patented weak-signal radio propagation system and 30 megawatt EMPC (Earth-Moon-Pluto-Charon) high-gain transmitter array. But you need not worry about such matters; we take care of everything! Just remember the PIN on your account, make sure you've got money in that sucker, and... of course, travel to Pluto.
