oops, I wasn't clear what I meant and didn't type properly was: "the goal
for comcast is stability, you don't care how they achieve that" which
still isn't 100% correct, but basically let them do their operations and
lets not pot-shot something that 'we' don't understand. I'm assuming that
peter hill is not a comcast employee, his email headers suggest a CMU grad
and a current Amazon employee.

go tartans.
