I've missed a good RGB rant for awhile and this is a good one. It would 
be good even if I didn't agree with it. I wish that I thought that 
corporate IT would take the issues seriously. But, I don't. Too many 
people have their "Certifications," and I believe that there is so much 
entropy that real change will require even more than lack of usability.

Thanks RGB, I needed that...
