Weighing Your Tools

This picture cracks me up.

It may need a little explaining.

This is the airport at Palmar Sur, Costa Rica. I think you can see that it is a rather small facility. This sign painted on the wall encourages you to go to the world wide web to book airline reservations for Sansa Airlines. Beneath that is a scale. Yep, that's the rudimentary way they weigh luggage.

Weight and the Web!

What a juxtaposition. But you know, it works. When we first started going to Costa Rica nine years ago, computers were not in evidence, but that is just the opposite now. Conversely, the scale has not changed. It worked well then and continues to deliver the information they need. (Mainly that they need to charge me extra for my overweight luggage.)

What's this all to do with networking?

Have you upgraded your contact management system? If so, do all the bells and whistles work for you? If not, do you need to go back to the old way?
