Indeed. With us the net loonies, the Wingtel mob, the *n*x bozzos and the Dysfunctional Bloody Ar**holes are all in the same open floor office. And indeed things get fixed and worked on by the right folks, usually within an acceptable timeframe. But more essentially: we tend to catch the problems at inception or design stage, rather than after production has been rushed.
Still have to house train the new PMs, but they'll fall into line soon.

Oh boy! I won't tell you where we found our "dark-fibre" intra-SAN network!...

But it's all Oracle's fault, ain't it? Damn SQL, it's always the problem. Never the space between the chair and the keyboard...

Indeed! Good story, that one. Surprising how often Ive seen it repeated and I still see it again and again. One would have thought IT damagement would have wised up. Unfortunately, they're all still looking for silver bullets... Received on Wed Apr 06 2011 - 23:12:08 CDT
