  • Nice point of view, luckily not all announcements are written is this way.

  • Icebergs AND rocks? That is above and beyond. Your efforts are most appreciated.

    I have had my Titanic moment when I started developing business systems and the first time it ran at the clients' company.

Fortunately my system wasn't a boat that could sink and people lose their lives.
