Last week I was asked for my "input" on ideas to correct a system performance issue. A performance issue caused by a design flaw I've been pointing at for 2.5 years!) Ron, do you plan on connecting the dots for them? Sounds like a good opportunity to me. I'm not saying one shouldn't state their opinion (especially when one is right, which we always are). I'm just saying that one should consider picking battles and only putting himself or herself out herself out there when there is some measurable possibility that anyone will listen. If someone has power and their ego invested in an idea, no set of numbers or logic is likely to change their mind. -- Matt Warden Cincinnati, OH, USA http://mattwarden.com This email proudly and graciously contributes to entropy.
