(1) we're more or less completely patched, partly because I made a big fuss and jumped and down insisting these ones really HAD TO BE APPLIED, ASAP. So I should still have a Friday evening ahead of me and a weekend to boot

(2) that it'll be a bit easier to make the case next time I want to insist they break the habits of a lifetime and apply the damn patches, already :)
