Two weeks ago I tried to wake up the three sleeping giants..the FMDAC, TFMDR and WWATS. I caused a little stir within the Task Force and Allyson Cohen, Vice-President, Treasurer and pretty much the glue that holds everything together, responded. Thank you Allyson .

After watching the Joe Patrick interviews I conned him into writing a guest post for Stout Standards and I know you will enjoy it. First off most tekkies who have been around any length of time know who Joe Patrick is and listen intently when he talks.
