Was chatting with a client yesterday about IT spending and I was making the point that it is happening but IT departments are keen to make every penny spent (metaphorically and otherwise) as efficient as possible.

Just back in Andorra from over two weeks constant travel, mainly in UK and surviving on 3G Dongles.
