Question:  I am with a trade association in DC that has about 40 employees and we have one internal IT Manager but we are constantly experiencing system wide outages that last a few minutes to several hours.  We also have many little problems with our individual computers all the time and I am wondering if this is a common occurrence in the business world or if we just happen to be unique.  What types of technology problems are other organizations experiencing on a regular basis ?  Liz C., Washington DC
Question: In these tough economic times, we are trying to save money where we can, but we have a server that is 5 years old and some other equipment that was purchased around the same time.  How long should we hang on to this stuff or should we replace it now ? - Will H, Maryland
