Ok, so excuse me if I'm just being really thick here...

...but if that had been happening, give that our average technology

*We're at 1% traffic.*

So how do we cross these managers over this?


Do we have to do more to push this crap at them harder to just scare the

Do they need some fear of God?

Do we need to do more to drive FUD?

Someone said you don't use FUD to sell cars... he's right, but we're not 
selling cars here, we're selling IT.
