    this, and I've seen incredible screw ups, and I'm talking about not government, but private sector IT. I was involved in a brokerage where someone forgot to call the moving company that was to transport the equipment. I was involved in a retail store setup where everything we needed was sent - cash registers, servers, peripherals - except for a monitor to connect to the server. And without a monitor, I could not log in to the server to run the configuration scripts. And this working for a fortune 500 corporation. These were not brand new projects but fairly rote tasks that were pretty routine on both of these accounts. So let's not use this as an excuse to bash government, especially since this is government moving into some very new turf. Shit happens. Let's judge on what is learned from this, how quickly these issues are resolved.

    Just another underemployed IT professional computer geek.
