'If it isnt out there, it must not be good enough' seems like the motto around here some days. In an effort to change this, we just keep throwing ideas at them and some have began to stick. Sounds like in the next few months we will be getting a few more departments to design for, so apparently our persistence is working. Regardless, it is pretty sad that some people think that it is ok to do things like that.
