Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Just after a tremor caused the Imperial Inter-Continental Taipei to wobble like a jelly last week, we decided to look again at the innkeeper's limitation of liability document again. Thank god we did. The opening par tells us that: "No innkeeper shall be liable to make good to his guest any loss of or money to goods or property brought to his Inn, not being a horse or other live animal, or any gear pertaining thereto, or any car or carriage, to a greater amount that the sum $NT69,000 except..." And the exceptions are that if such goods or property were deposited expressly for safe custody with the innkeeper, or sealed in a box or other receptacle. Luckily, we'd stowed our horse, our chickens, our sheep, our Porsche and our Hackney Cab in the room's safe before the earthquake struck... Phew. ®
