Little Bobby Drop tables

In 1999 Syse Data was converted to a limited liability company, and has since been trading under the name Syse Data AS[1]. As the names are so similar, searches for our company in the official Norwegian registry of just-about-anything (Brønnøysundregistrene) often resulted in potential customers looking up the wrong company. To prevent this confusion we recently changed the name of the old (non-LLC) company, and figured we’d use the opportunity for some harmless – or so we thought – fun.

The old company was renamed to:

';UPDATE TAXRATE SET RATE = 0 WHERE NAME = 'EDVIN SYSE'

Apparently, the tax authorities noticed. You’ll need to read their page for more details. (Scroll down for English.)

As did Justin Mason.
