Another day, another contract. Looks like we will win the DB contract, thanks mainly to being able to do it cheaply, since we would use existing hardware and already bought software licenses, while the competition proposes using NT (which the guys don't own), MS SQL (which they have to buy) , and a large PC (which they have few, so have to buy).
Since that makes their solution twice as expensive as ours, I guess we win ;-)
Then, a nice teaching contract, a network study contract, and even small repair-my-computer-in-five-minutes-and-I-ll-pay-you-$20 gigs.
I wonder what all these people were doing last month, when I had to go negative on my bank account (but no, I'm not complaining :-)
