With Demand Attach, the file servers can make your coffee, do your
laundry and change the baby's diaper.  Demand Attach can end the wars
in the Middle East, stop racism in it's tracks and reduce the effects
of Global Warming.   With Demand Attach, you'll never have your
Windows boxes BSOD, your Unix boxes will never need to fsck, and
you'll get a shiny US nickel, as well!
