You know, I was just asking myself that very question.
In addition to it being Monday, I think it's because a large number of people who are normally reasonable and extremely intelligent are intent upon doing some incredibly stupid things and it's my job to stop them. Only I can't just say 'no, that is idiotic, so we will not do that.' I need to actually convince them that I am right and they are wrong. Argh.
Seriously, how can 'backbone data kit' be a good name for something that a.) does not contain backbone data and b.) will never be released, bundled, or otherwise collected into a kit?
