I had a wee laugh today at an e-mail appeal I saw. I have an account with LinkedIn, you know it's like facebook for business-people. I have joined several discussion/interest groups within that site, all construction industry-based.
A construction industry member in Qatar send a round-robin e-mail to the group today asking for the names of suppliers of sports stadium equipment and infrastructure. It's for the 2022 World Cup.
A perfectly reasonable request when you start from scratch, but it's also a bit like saying "Right - we've won the 2022 World Cup, now how do we build those suckers ?"
