  1. Woohoo, Does that mean I get the weekend off Ronen. :)

  2. Rough way to get a day off eh Greg lol! Just a note for everyone to remember though, it says 4 hrs for one and 20 minutes for the other, but in the world of BlackBerry that 4 hrs should work out to about 8 for the end users

  3. Fine with me so long as they finally implement redundancy this time.

  4. One can hope they have learned from past mistakes I guess.
