Gustavo is a fairly calm person.  His response, as I recall, was "aye, aye,

Gustavo is aware of the problem.

  Carrie,

Did you hear G's response? Is it something that is
possible, or will be soon? Is engineering working on
the solution? Did Gentle Gustavo swear in frustration,
or is he so gentle that even that being mentioned
didn't ruffle his calm. smile
