    I think i can translate this article.

    "We last used rank ordering 20 years ago and the program we used is on a 5.25 inch floppy disk we just found at the bottom of a filing cabinet, We're currently trying to get the hardware to read the disk, as well as trying to see if anyone who knows how to do it is still alive."

    Reading between the lines . . . they don't have a system!

    Picture a scene reminiscent of "Twelve Angry Men" with a bunch of sweaty anoraks with clipboards arguing over overwhelming trivialities and trying to push their preferred options to be adopted.
