Might want to check that list...
Ted Cruz is southern baptist
Obviously I was referring to the x86 servers not the legacy platforms
So updating these servers with newer models via donation or whatever would go to great lengths to reduce that $20k bill.
I understand why they need the different build environments but:
2 Network switch vendors
3 UPS vendors
in 2 racks
It's like the thrift store of computer closets.
So two years after CEPT approved working towards the SMS messaging standards 3 dudes who nobody ever heard of met and invented the standard.
Unless the two unnamed people in this story are Friedhelm Hillebrand and Bernard Ghillebaert it is a myth sold to a reporter.
Otherwise it's like the guy that copyrighted email.
It is a completely acceptable defense if you aren't on the losing side
10k? People are terrible at estimating the worth their stuff has. So that's probably closer to 2 or 3k (I'm not talking replacement cost I'm talking if we had to sell the stuff wholesale)

What do you do when you are trying to maximize short term shareholder value in a distribution based business?
Cut R&D, get rid of sales staff for new markets...

For items that absolutely need to be TAA compliant a lot of auditing is done. Especially with products that require that all handling is done on a NOFORN basis. If one of the units we manufacture and market under these regulations would be found to have a ROC sourced component it would be good night sweetheart for us.
It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
