At a previous contract, I was fortunate that I worked
for the Director of Engineering. When I proposed
something along this line, I was successful in also
getting him to get a programmer to develop code in
some of the apps where the apps would automatically
output html code under certain conditions, and deposit
that code into defined directories. This was usualy
along the line of status reports, network performance
graphs, and lists of personnel that were on-shift for
support, along with their beeper and phone numbers.

When a user would access the link on the intranet,
they would get up-to-the-second information generated
purely by the network.
