<rant>Apparently the software vendor that delivered our advertising system is about the evilest company, they have put in tripwires in their system... so, if there is anything suspicious going on they can shut down the server remotely according to our head of marketing... the company's marketing model is quite bizarre, to even make a pre-study for a quotation on a new feature, they'll charge something in the neighborhood of $15k... just to make an estimate about how many man-hours the development would take... I've never heard of anything like it... it's customer driven development, not the other way around (like in the real world). Every time they update anything in the system, the db (which they had a university to do a study on, they didn't even know how their own system worked) or any one of the sixteen interfacing applications that can connect with their system, something else brakes... for which they charge for a few man-hours for support when their technicians have to do on-site support, like applying patches or just have a four hour coffee break.</rant>

Went to mom and dads place this evening with my brother... mom was a bit confused about my blood type, AB+ ... no one in the family has that type as far as she knows... must be the mailman or the milkman.
