THE situation worsens... both for myself, and the enterprise. I feel almost totally out of the loop. Disgusted and disenchanted, I have been exploring new pursuits, one could be encouraging. Sorry for being so cryptic... but must be carefull.
Despite that, I got into developing a data format for a customer DB that can be easily updated, merged, synced with handhelds, exported for mail merge... and the application is free on all Mac's. I want to roll it out quickly, but need support from management. We'll see if I get it.
