Hi Seb,

I (quite respectfully) disagree - and I figure we'll probably continue 
to disagree about this, so there's no need for me to get preachy or 
anything -- just a short note to explain 'another viewpoint':

About a year or two ago I found the forms and -really- wanted to help 
push through the paperwork to see if we could wrangle $$ out of Compaq.

Unfortunately, we weren't an NFO at the time ... so it probably wasn't 
going to happen.

My feelings at the time were (a) for a very large company our total 
bandwidth costs are chump-change, (b) with less to worry about on the 
funding side ... I figgered we could blaze new trails on the 'service' 
side and have more _fun_.

I thought it a small price for a "Powered by Enron/MCI/Unilever/Frederick's 
of Hollywood" logo.
