Someone should tell Cerner Corp you can still get them for free,
and thus they overpaid by oh, $12 an address!
I'm waiting for someone to come back and balk at $12/address, and try
reduce the number of addresses they buy, forgetting that pesky powers-
business: "In the interest of containing the cost of the deal, XYZ
agreed to buy 27,000 addresses instead of the original 65,536."
That will be a definite facepalm moment.
