Kiriander - not sure why your message would be flagged as spam, CP sent me the email notification. I know this customer is undergoing a couple of changes. There is a push to silo *everything* at corporate headquarters, so if you don't work there, you are rarely in the loop.

They are also paranoid to the extreme, as someone got into their network a couple of years back. They still refuse to talk about it, no details, etc.

Interestingly, the corporate policy is that you must open a ticket to receive IT support. About the only time I get a response on tickets is when I need my account unlocked. Ask a difficult question, and I rarely get a response. My feel is that they are severely overworked or understaffed - same difference. I only know the local folks.
