I find it interesting that ZOT Group seems to be getting a hell of a bigger
bang for their buck with one year less under their belt, 80% less staff, and
a sliver of the budget.
Thanks also for mentioning IP dialtone; I guess it's time to call TOG back
to chat about their interest in ZOT Group to head up
*IT Dialtone* [too bad that section of the website is diabolically under
construction http://www.opengroup.org/overview/itdt.htm ]
Perhaps Zepher could use ZOT Group's services as well. What's up with the
screwy spelling? It's Zephyr, no? Anyway, I couldn't reach their site
without my connection timing out a couple of times already today.
It seems that Z is now the X of the new millenium. XOT we're not, however.
