[OT] Dell web sites ?

I cannot access Dell web sites this morning. Any of you can ?
I know there is a cable damaged somewhere that recently affects India 's 
internet but never thought Dell moved their servers over there :)

It is working now.

I think this was a DNS problem. whois showed correct information but 
nslookup could not find anything for dell.com.

www.dell.com worked fine for me. And I was able to get to support.dellcom
without incident. I guess YMMV. ;-)

We purchased MFG/Pro from QAD and I think it was installed for about 
200k. However each improvement or modification is at the cost of a 
consultants time at around AUD $250 an hour. Each new module costs 
between 5000-50000 dollars. And then the 'improvement' or module fails 
to work so it's another 3 to 4 weeks of hack/fix to get it working. Then 
you have the yearly slug for support and licensing and you probably  are 
paying  another 50-100k per annum for the product.

I think in the end it would be better to buy an OpenMFG or Compiere 
license and then employ a programmer from the projects community full 
time to make it do what you want.
