Don't convince them write a static html page with frames or iframes to survey monkey and call it done. Tell them it'll take a couple of weeks to test and debug and then upload it to their volunteer signup URL.


BTW, this is the classic ROI conundrum. The work used once a year will NEVER payoff, but you just can't convince some customers of that. :/

Good. Forks are a good way for those who disagree to still get along. Debian and Forked-ian and still share patches (outside of the init process) and stay in sync easily ... if that is what they choose to do. So we will wind up with the choice of Debian-classic or Debian-with-sprinkles. Cool.

This reminds me of GNU Emacs and XEmacs, they disagree (or lack legal rights to make code free) on the basics but a lot of the elisp is kept in sync. Choice is G(NU)ood.

The switch to x86 processors won't affect existing Unisys customers looking to upgrade older mainframes with faster systems. x86 Dorado servers will continue to support the ClearPath OS 2200 operating system, while the Libra line will support the ClearPath MCP operating system. Both the OSes will execute tasks on Intel's Xeon server chips through a firmware layer that translates the OS code for execution on x86 chips.

Let's organize this thing and take all the fun out of it.
