    Ah, Bull

    I used to love having Bull as a supplier. Out 90 minute weekly meeting when deploying a whole bunch of DPX/20 servers would follow a set pattern:

    - First question from our devs

    - One hour meeting after the meeting to sort out the stuff not sorted due to the infighting

    - Pub

    Happy days.
