Yeah I am just trying to stir up trouble (wink)  We all know that the 
lab is quite different than the real world.

By the way, I am headed to Florida for the Citrix Customer Forum on 
Wednesday. This is where they take about 15 of their top customers and 
deluge them with what ifs and how much would you pay for type questions.

If anyone has any big issues they wan't brought up to Citrix (and I'll 
be sure to try and get it to the people that matter) let me know by end 
of Tuesday.
