Yeppers -- I'ze just teasing. My chem degree does come in handy once in a while. I simply don't get enough opportunities to type "bewbs." I don't think anyone does, really. And certainly not for a family newspaper.

They have the servers logged in as an admin ALL THE TIME or the appliation will not run. I could go on and on. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it... and I only manage the DNS/AD portion of it. The guys that deal with the application themselves seem to always be half a step off of a skyscraper ledge.

We're basically stuck, Meditech knows it, and they use it to their advantage. Even the agencies hate it, but they aren't willing to try and find a competitor to replace it with. They're scared because the data may not be migrateable (sp?) and Meditech would probably never share the proprietary database schema to write some sort of migration tool. Who knows, maybe there ARE migration tools, but nobody is willing to rock the boat enough to find one.
