I have said that time and again…. that’s just gas!

However, at a certain point this becomes like BPL — just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. If you really think about it in either case, you could come up with a better solution for the same amount of money. That said, there are currrently $100Bs being spent on suboptimal solutions because nobody did really think about it. So, who knows? Comments are closed.
