Frank's Quotations and Observations:
"Personally, I find technology exciting for technology sake alone. But, in evaluating the technical claims of all the computer experts, I have to try to keep focused back to the "business benefit" of the technology. Also, I am painfully aware that new technology claims are easily made by those experts. However, making the product actually work and provide a business benefit can be a long and frustrating ordeal. In that light, there will probably always rage the technical debates about the latest and greatest "bleeding edge" technology verses what has proven to be enormously reliable."
"I don't think I have ever had an original thought. I mean somebody somewhere, sometime, has already conceived and written what I consider my own brilliant invention. So, a huge "Thank You" to all my many mentors and everyone who blazed this trail ahead of me!"
