quicko: money online

Seems to be way more common here -- that is, transferring money from one account into another. Instead of paying for rent with a check (or tithing with a check, or paying back a friend who bought you a ticket with a check, etc.), most people just get the BSB (still don't know what it stands for ... and frankly really don't care ...) and account number (!! horrors!! doesn't that just raise all sorts of American alarm bells?!) from whoever they owe and whip whiz bang, there you go, money transferred!

Unless, of course, you want to do things internationally, which is such a sad story I don't think I'll even get into it here.
