Here in Sydney I come across the saying, you need to have a passport to go to Parramatta. I do not understand this. Though it sounds like it might be a racist term. I work on Passport equipment at work so I often use the term. A while back they changed the name to MSS but most people still call them passports. The manufacturer is Nortel Networks and it is a device that provides ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) and Frame Relay services. The term ATM also causes some confusion because of the banking version of this acronym.
