I've had two network switches that gave me problems. (I don't necessarily count a component "breaking" as a problem—just normal long term system operation.)
- A $17k switch kind of stopped forwarding packets. In fact, it would drop the first 6 data bytes from each packet, but send the rest fine. Took a little while to figure out what was happening as it would helpfully recalculate the CRC for me.
- A $40 switch developed a bad capacitor.* It dropped packets at 0% to 90% depending on its mood swings, but it looked like my network provider was just getting slower; which often happens anyway.
* I opened the box, and an electrolytic cap looked like it was pregnant, maybe about to have a baby ceramic. B-)
Your point is taken, but that's not actually the case.
Fees are $0.10/page, search is $16 to $28/hour depending on the type. You are notified in advance if the fees will be over $25.
Also, the request has to be "not primarily in the commercial interest of the requester" , which may or may not be the case here.
From Genesis 41:20-21:
The lean, ugly cows ate up the seven fat cows that came up first. But even after they ate them, no one could tell that they had done so; they looked just as ugly as before. Then I woke up.
It was just a dream... B-)
Actually last year bonuses were forgone amid lower profits....
Now Watson has some data on what happens to a company when you cut the pay of its top-performing employees more than the lowest performing! *
* I'm talking about the regular employees who get ranked, not necessarily the exectives.
