So what happens when one does the monthly tuesday patches for windoze 
and your security door controller running on SQLserver (micro$oft) 
fails. Back out all the patches - inform micro$oft - wait - wait some 
more - never get a response - call the security software vendor - aware 
of patch problem - no fix planned - buy the newest version. All this on 
a stable windoze XP prof. Dell box. $$$$ that's all that matters.
