Build a business case: developing custom apps

Any reader who doubts the sheer raw power of Microsoft's Windows Server System is advised that it has the potential to relocate entire nations thousands of miles. Check out these extracts from a current ad for the earth-moving Redmond product:

That's right, the Swiss Department of Foreign Affairs IT operation is run by a bloke with no tie and a shoulder bag from the previously unknown canton of Moscow. Blimey. Suffice it to say, we at El Reg have been on the blower to MS sales to see if Windows Server System can relocate Vulture Central to Trindad and Tobago. Naturally, we told them we meant the Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean, rather than the Trindad and Tobago which lies, according to the MS atlas, on the border between Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. ®
