Something is broken on their end.

Thinking that it would be much easier to build and integrate the OSS solution from the ground up, rather than shoehorn it into an existing Exchange environment, what's the best approach here?
How Does a 9/80 Work Schedule Work Out?
Insightful?! You've got to be kidding me--do the damned math, it's 8.8 hours per workday.
