Budgeting when research grants are involved is... Hmm. I don't think I can
say anything particularly nice here, so I'll say nothing. Mind you, I'd rather
they employed me as a programmer for longer than spent all that money on giving
me an up-to-date system. The latest and greatest are way overrated. ;^)
