Pray tell, why would you have a pc that runs the key infrastructure running office apps and email as well.

See, even Google employ idiots in marketing.

Available from eBay, shipped from China 3 days after 1st roll out.
"the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has refused to publish them, citing commercial sensitivity."

Pick a extremely high number x2 (to allow for the fact it was under budget) - cost of cancellation = amount of kick backs received.
...lucky we post and login via secure forums around here, who knows what information go be gotten otherwise.
"If your core servers – and hence your core applications – live in a data centre, then by definition they're not on your premises."
And if we own the data centre?
Lest not forget they may employ Journalling at both ends.
...after all this time are people STILL fucking up daylight saving times. It's not like it is even unique to the UK.
