Swedish Computer Systems

Sweden is famous for many things, but computer companies are not among that list. After his weekend’s trip to Ikea I can see why. We wanted some shelves to flank the TV and provide storage for DVD and books. My wife had already selected the style, so we skipped the long march through the store and went straight to the collection warehouse. This meant we did not have the shelf location. We saw units from the correct set, but not in the color and size we needed. We tried to use their computer search. We keyed in the name just as it appeared on the sign beside us. The computer claimed that it could not find any such stuff. We could see it, but the computer was resolute in denying existence of anything such thing. Fortunately, the staff are more helpful and knowledgable than their computers.

In addition to the furniture, I also picked up half a dozen jars of pickled herring, so despite the computer problems it was a productive trip.
