But that's OK, since you deployed it in last week's maintenance window, to
comply with the upper management requirement that they be given advance
notice of all unscheduled outages. ;)

But seriously - if you had a HandWave 2100 already installed 2 continents
away, would interrogating/tweaking/etc the model at 4AM with 10 minutes
notice be feasible?

(And yes, I know Chris probably has some tools in place before the fact -
the question is how many of the REST of you do?)
