In the late 80's, I watched an IT department refuse to give our
outlying lab enough computing power. So our lab put in some
unix boxes, and one of our guys installed a Wollongong setup so
that the unix network could talk with the VAX that was all we
were supposed to have. The IT guys flew out to argue with us
that unix was a bad decision.
They said, "You can't talk to the VAX systems!"
We said, "We do already. Look! It's already up and running!"
Their response: "No, you can't get that to work."
None are so blind as those who will not see.
