"[B]ackup is the last service likely to be touched or impacted negatively by spending cuts."

When I read this on December 17th, I agreed 100%. Then on December 19th, _my_ position at GlassHouse was eliminated due to spending cuts. ;)

I still agree with the comment. There's still a lot of pain there, and a real sense that there are some solutions that can help make that pain go away.

Hey... I read your post a day or two after I wrote those words, and I have to say that I didn't think the irony of it was very amusing at all.

My sympathies go out to you.

To anybody reading this who can do something about it: I always found that W. Curtis Preston conducted himself with intelligence, integrity, and good humour. Somebody give the man a job, he is a valuable voice in our industry!
