	I would definitely have to agree.  Personally, I think this 
speaks volumes.

	I have spent 4 hours on the phone with GCTR trying to find
someone capable of understanding that HSRP does not work when you put
interfaces in the same subnet on different VLANs.....

	I have spent 5 hours waiting for GCTR to diagnose a simple
failed linecard.  That was just the diagnosis; it took another 7
hours or so to actually replace it.

	You're right about multihoming; anyone in a GCTR facility
should /definitely/ be multihomed.
