99% of the mission critical systems are fixed.

Now which mission critical systems fall in that 1% that have to be added to how many hundreds of systems that were initially considered mission critical 18 mos. ago that disappeared off the list. I remember reading someone asking the question previously something like this.

Is it possible for the very departments that deal with their systems on a daily basis not to have a clue which systems were, are and will be mission critical. Therefore, with each quarterly report and statistic, hundreds more dropped off the list. Which ones are they?

Good, I hope all the Day Before The Storm People were listening, searching for their notorious "sign," and found none. For the first time in history I hope they haven't a chance to panic shop The Day Before The Storm, and are caught with their pants down within that storm. I want them to be cured of their ill thinking, bad logic, and It's All About Me mentality.
