Unnamed Administration sources reported that Roeland Meyer said:

A) A friend got bit badly by the "anything I can attach I will"
syndrome. He was in the UK, and the usual USG local POP (from PSI)
was FUBAR.

So, why were they dialing international when ATT WorldNet is closer/cheaper?

Because, as I said, his agency had/has an account with PSI.
Standimg orders are to use it. When not available, they fall back
to calling LD.

They could have also used ATT and punched a tunnel through
to their host (still have to allow ATT dial port access). 

So YOU are volunteering to shepard this through Procurement?

{It's clear you have never been a GS employee or you'd not make such
suggestions....}

B) I'm intrigued by the proposal for pseudo attachments. 
Hmm, what's really needed?

Key ingredient ... critical mass of sysadms. 

True. What's the Buddist truism.. 

        "Enlightenment is 10,000 miles that way. Start walking".... 

I think is how it goes..
