It looks like the log jam may be breaking up a bit. SysTest Labs is now an
authorized software ITA and--according to them--they are become an
authorized hardware tester as well within the next week or so. Figure this:
up till now, Wyle Labs was the only hardware tester. Now that Doug Lewis
has been relieved of his oversight role, we now have another hardware
tester, breaking Wyle's monopoly. Coincidence?

Maybe there will be more ITAs. Who knows?

I spoke with Jennifer Grapko this afternoon. She will be sending me details
on what we need to have done to get certified.
