Yes.  The quote is in a 2column/2inch press release that was *mauled* by
the CW hacks.  CW have since been chastised, as has my boss. ;) the quote
is in association with the webserver survey my other company runs every

absorb infinite amounts of design time talking to the b*stards - and they'll
*still* misprint.  The trick is to put a press-release/history/quotable
2 paragraph generic bullshit section in some prominent place in the web pages,
and just have done with it.
