Okay, I can't stand it... have to tell this story: I once worked for
called Informatics General
Corporation, who sold my division to another firm named Policy Management
Systems (PMS). Boy,
did our customers have fun with that! One of my clients sent me a coffee
that said "Don't bother
me, I've got PMS!"

One of the software packages for PMS was AIDS -- I can't remember what that
stood for, but the
package was older than the acronym for the disease...
