apparently you haven't heard about our Liberal party, they've been
helping themselves to a little too much of the tax payers cash it would
seem - in a bit of hot water now and their long-standing rule is about
to come to an abrupt end.

I think I've heard something about a huge scandal... that nobody is
allowed to talk about, but everyone does anyway...

I'd love to hear the project manager's explanation. Then again, I'll bet
he doesn't have one.

One question: was Haliburton involved?

I wonder about those folks from down this way that headed your way
after our last presidential elections. They must be tickled pink that
the conservatives are gaining control. <g>

Six months ago we re-visited our laptop purchasing arrangements (about
95% laptops around here) and went with HP. Since then I have had
nothing but trouble, not only with their support staff but with our rep.

We were promised three things when we agreed to go to HP

1. Employee purchase program. Where employees can buy at our rates
2. Tech support in our country of origin
3. A "quick log" web based system

After multiple e-mails to our HP Account Exec we still have nothing.

We will be moving to Toshiba in our next move.

Per me si va ne la citta dolente,
per me si va ne l'etterno dolore,
per me si va tra la perduta gente.
Giustizia mosse il mio alto fattore:
fecemi la divina podestate,
la somma sapienza e 'l primo amore.
Dinanzi a me non fuor cose create
se non etterne, e io etterno duro.

Now that's a good idea. Expose to oxygen and it's self cooking.

I was a serving member of the Royal Navy at the time we sold those
"Upholder" class submarines to Canada. I do recall thinking to myself 'what
the heck have the Canadian's done to upset us so much for us to sell them
those 4 peaces of crud engineering'.

On behalf of all serving and ex-serving matelots I apologise profusely.
