Logging off SBM’s IB and the french spiderman


I have a good news for you : We are finally on Friday! :-)

Coming to today’s post : Yesterday night, I ROFL at the sight of the following message which was displayed onto my screen while trying to log into the internet banking :

I’m 200% sure that it got something to do with the error I received while attempting to log in earlier in the morning (apprx – 12 hours earlier). Fortunately, everything got okay when I just gave another try, that is, 24hours after my first login attempt.

That’s an additional reason for SBM to think about upgrading their internet banking. This reminds me of the disastrous days when MCB upgraded their banking system whereby ATM‘s were unoperable, accounts showed errors while nearly all computer-operated processes were damn slow. Anyway, I still have my SBM account while I closed the MCB one last year.

Another news, don’t know if it is worth sharing : This day was also marked with the french spiderman, Alain Robert, climbing the Mauritius Telecom Tower to officially launch 4G in the island.

@yadhav13 noted a very interesting fact :

Have a nice friday and bon weekend!


Ex SJC and UOM student, I earn my life as a senior developer. Though I love taking pictures and writing for my blog, I'm dedicating more time to family nowadays. Very few posts as compared to some time back. I love sharing personal things from my life but I also actively write about events, activities and anything hot news on my Facebook profile, this blog's fan page and my twitter account too.

    if you are interested, I wrote a small post on some troubles with SBM Internet banking, which you can check:

    I guess that’s why you need to have user acceptance tests and see how users feel with these forms :-)

    On my side, I wrote another post comparing the internet banking of SBM to that of MCB (prior their new system) :

  • Akhil Ramlugun

    The buffering problem is most probably due to the bug in the latest update of Adobe Flash Player. The problem is to be resolved in its next update.

    BTW, why do people use hashtags on Facebook?

  • Yashvin Awootar

    No no. that was a tweet, shared automatically on Facebook.

  • JP Fortuno

    SBM internet banking worked ONLY once for me on INTERNET EXPLORER and the UI is really ugly (like many websites designed by so-called web ‘designers’)

    er.. Shall I say more?

    If you wish… feel free :-)

    “Alain Robert climbed the MT tower faster than the YouTube video which is still buffering…”

    I vote this as Dayalog of the Year 2012!

    Who seconds this motion?

    PS: you’ll probably read that I’ve been interned at Brown Sequard if my office colleagues find me still laughing (as I have been doing since reading it this morning) when it’s time to leave…

  • Yashvin Awootar

    Seconded Sir :-)
    + I’m sure that the people who liked the status on fb will do same.

    “Yesterday night”???

    Yesternight is preferable, as said by Oxford dictionary! :)
    I believe there is no day at night, maybe in your case! 😛

  • Yashvin Awootar

    haha. Will definitely use this oxford word next time.

  • the Miker

    Duffer, you should have log out before you leave you system !

  • Yashvin Awootar

    @the Miker : It is unfortunate that you did not take some of your time to read the post properly. Anyway, thank you for your useless advice.
