Brian Buhrow and I replaced a completely failing database-synchronization-over-Microsoft-Exchange system with UUCP across American President Lines and Neptune Orient Lines fleets, back in the mid-90s. UUCP worked perfectly (Exchange connections were failing ~90% of the time), was much faster (average sync time on each change reduced from about three minutes to a few seconds), and saved them several million dollars a year in satellite bandwidth costs. UUCP kicks ass. -Bill
