"I believe they call it the good ol' boy network.  If you look back through the years of ARC updates you see a lot of the same names.  It's a harsh reality but either you are in or you are out. "

"Make sure they can fully support your use! Our facility is wireless and S-L-O-W. The folks at the Rec Center are happy as clams because they get instant return. We wait for 2 minutes on receipts because of the delivery method. Groan!"
