This is like the police investigating their own crimes; they're not going to 'find' anything until it won't be their fault.

everyone who lost money on this should sue them and let the lawyers gather the evidence. That would speed things up I imagine.

"making utmost efforts"...that always does it.

I'm pretty sure that someone's digitized 'hanko' was not current which ended up causing the whole operating system to 'halt and catch fire' while the bits and bobs all huddled together in the backroom behind 'the curtain' waiting for 'the problem' to just go away. In the end, it will probably be blamed on something unforeseeable and be written off as 'shoganai'.

Hardware?! What hardware?

The TSE has said it has no plans at this point to ask Fujitsu for compensation. Tokita said Fujitsu had made no decision on the issue.

We know you would have if fujitsu wasn't a J-company.

I think it was a planned shut down for other reasons.

I think their back-up should be having traders in the pit doing it the old fashioned way (open outcry).

Hardware?! What hardware?

That's easy to answer. Most probably something went wrong with the massive FPGA arrays enabling 200 us transaction times.

Fujitsu have a troubled history. Their UK Post Office system was full of faults, leading to post office managers being fired and accused of theft, when it was the system that was causing it. They are only now being compensated for ir. An earliery project with the UK NHS was also a mess, over-priced and underperforming, leading to a change of vendor.

Tokyo slipping to fourth behind Shanghai in the financial hub ranking. Several days have already passed since the TSE outage and they still don't know why? Why didn't the backup work and how often was it tested? Start with those two questions.

Tokyo slipping to fourth behind Shanghai in the financial hub ranking. Several days have already passed since the TSE outage and they still don't know why? Why didn't the backup work and how often was it tested? Start with those two questions.

Will need several meetings to form a committee to oversea the testing committee that will hold their

own series of meetings to choose those tasked with doing the testing and they too holding a series of

meetings to draw a program that has to be confirmed with hankos from the heads of the subsection, section, dept, head office, personel dept, Admin dept , Ceo and chairman.

Asked who was responsible for the system failure, Tokita said it was too early to say because the investigation was still ongoing. He declined to comment further on a client's business.

Asked who was going to be the scapegoat for the system failure, they said it was too early to say because they haven’t decided whose face to save.

Perhaps someone left their bitcoin miner running and forgot to disable it before trading started?

Decades ago, we bought a few Fujitsu 108-CPU systems. They worked fine and were cheaper than Sun Microsystems. It helped to get Sun to renegotiate a higher discount.
