Packet switching pickle prompts potential pecuniary problems


Re: Back in my NetWare days

In a past life, we were forced to use Lotus Notes.

We managed to set it up so our local server attempted a connection to the Notes hub to check for emails (and whatever else was needing to be updated) every x minutes.

Unfortunately, whatever we thought we'd done what actually happened was as soon as it completed any data transfer and the connection terminated it would already be time to connect again.

Meeting with the accountant to explain the first month's ISDN bill was interesting.
