What is stopping you?

A few years ago, a friend and I were in on a bid to test the MetroFi
network in Portland.  We weren't selected.  We thought it would be fun
and did it anyway.  In many ways, we did a better job than the outfit
that got the job.  Don't just sit there complaining!  Do something
about it!

As they say on the linux kernel mailing list:
