Gee- isn't the user support side dropping everything you're doing (say,
restoring that critical TNS file the DBA accidently deleted), and
assisting to do whatever the aforementioned omnipotent PI requests?

:-) :-) :-)

Seriously- I agree with Andy's extended post- very well put.  And yes,
the system support staff need to know "enough" about the sciences and
tools to be able to be certain that a simply security patch update
didn't just hose the heck out of the cluster's ability to create
accurate results....   That is actually one of the things that makes our
respective areas quite exciting, educational, and most certainly NOT
boring like a "standard" IT shop can get sometimes....
