FTS: "About ten boxes here are still running Windows XP and would be too old to upgrade to any newer version of Windows."

Counting his own machine, that brings the sure total to at least "About" 11.

Though the EULA doesn't actually define how big a "small business" can be.. So if he's just at about 11, or slightly more, then yeah, he can use it, but if his company is too big to be considered a "small business" then it is a no go for even those 10. How big is too big? Who knows. (Bring on the phallus jokes...)

... is that it is possible to flip a coin and have it land heads up 1,000 times consecutively - it can happen and is increasingly likely to happen in a larger number of trials. Same can be said for a "Sandy" occurring in consecutive (or near neighbor) years. One thing is evident - the east coast, sand bars, outer banks, etc, were formed and shaped by this type of storm. I expect the 700 year estimate is fanciful.

Just like a bunch of monkeys could be banging on a bunch of type writers and would eventually write the exact phrase that you wrote. Probably...
