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.  ;^)
