"In the Vatican they update their technology every 75 years, whether it needs updating or not."
That was my motto some years ago when I worked there.
However, I was glad to see in the Bolletino today that the Holy See worked out an agreement with Telecom Italia for a big fiber optic infrastructure which will allow them to do things everyone else has been doing for a while now.
Of course this is on a three year trial basis. It will be possible to go back to hand written notes carried by uscieri and cans with string in 2013.
