Many years a go, we installed ethernet over the entire campus of Denmarks
largest engineering company (FLS).  At the center of it all, we had the
first Cisco AGS+ sold, fitted with all ethernet ports.

Of course at some point the CEO comes round and wants to see "that new
expensive network box" which had cost so much money.

I will never forget the look on his face when the CIO opened the rackdoor
and showed him a 6U box with a huge Cisco logo and nothing else.


Cesiums are a lot like that.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
