     Gee Bill, how many gloating emails per second does it take to prove 
     that M$ created this problem for themselves.<g> Nobody forced M$ to 
     design a network like that. They did it. They make these outrageous 
     claims about "enterprise computing" and "uptime" and "scalability" 
     then promptly fall flat on their face (again and again) when their 
     stuff won't work. If M$ wants to convince the world that their 
     software is reliable and scalable and ......, then they need to 
     truly prove it. Real results, not just hype and advertising.

Does anyone think this is only a diversion for the AS/400 staffs of the 
world to see if M$ can cause an AS/400 to fail due to the absurd number of 
gloating e-mails?
