Four months down the road and the facts remain the same

Well, here we are, four months after the last post and the FFV's are still keeping us on the edge of our seats waiting for a prolonged period of UPTIME.

There have been some changes here at Ivory Tower Inc. The Brilliant Security Person's PHB has changed. After a rigorous search for the perfect candidate, a series of exactly one interview, and a long distance call\dinner\handshake and the new PHB took her seat. An amazing fit...especially since she has followed another member of senior management from the good old days. Curious tho it was, I think she will actually effect some positive change here at Ivory Tower. It will take some time due to the entrenched opposition. Thankfully for the new PHB, those in the trenches are continuing to dig.

The FFV's have a new leader as well. It comes as no surprise really. There are only so many lies the previous leader could tell before the heat got to hot. So, now we have another liar to contend with except this one is trying to convince us he's NOT lieing. Uh-huh. Sure. So it's no longer a hack attack effecting the entire midwest...this time it's DNS? Clever...but not clever enough. Oh...one more thing...see, we KNOW what we are doing so don't try and spread that bullsh*t here. We don't play that game.

Over the past 3 weeks I don't think we have gone for more than 2 days without one incident or another achieving the Gold Standard of relieving our customers from their ability to use the product they paid for. Amazing track record isn't it.
