Actually Dell is.... They are selling servers with NT 2000 and promoting
"uptime" for the all of them.

BOA is promoting a 24/7 banking solution. Neither 24 nor 7.

Absolutely different scales. We have two Billion dollar companies promoting
services that they cannot offer 24/7 against DC and one webserver serving up
millions of hits a month to thousands of very ACTIVE users.

Actually the downtime this afternoon is not Alpha testing. Paul referred to
the end of the Alpha of ZEO and about implementing it on Zope.org. ZEO,
though, has been around for about a year and is certainly not as Alpha as
some "alphas."

Yup.. and a constant source of amusement for me! :)
