Whats bizarre is the NIS/LDAP gateway that padl.com sells starting at  
$1500.

I said screw it and just migrated over to OpenLDAP.

Didn't think it was a PITA but then again, all IT is a PITA so non of  
it is if you catch my drift.

I mean if its all a PITA, then its not a PITA cuz PITA is PITA if  
there is no PITA to compare to.
