Is it not your goal, in going into E-commerce transactions to: Develop “one on one” real time dialogue, with strangers, while sharing infinite layers of information released to satisfy any marketing query, in a virtual (fake) environment? Or, rather, is your GT aim, for Instantaneous Gratification; for some schmuck hack?

“Dearest Brother, still not listening? Why won’t you reply to my comments? The first rule of boxing: Protect yourself at all times. Do you think the hacks and whacks don’t protect their setups?
“The day you install your security system for your own counter, you stop flying blind: you start measuring and understanding the results of your promotional strategy which means better results, less time wasted and a nice, exponentially growing traffic curve.”

Dearest Brother: Do we have the same Dad?
I am aware of the following facts: You just borrowed $7,000 to buy a used truck. You financed $20,000 to go back to college to get your real estate license. In addition, you refinanced your house mortgage to pay for new computer equipment and the addition of your home office. Leave out the Italian crystal lighting fixtures, and leather wallpaper, and buy yourself the best security system we can find.
Don’t you think you might want to think even further into the future, when your computer business is in obsolescence; because, the lag time for computer industry is less than five years. Your financing is for 10 years. I don’t need you divorced, and wrecked, because you failed to see the wisdom. Some things take much prayer, y Dios Mio.
“You need to build in the best security system available today. I don’t feel right letting you commit E-commerce suicide. I know you are depending on GT sales to cover your debt consolidation when a gas giant hacker waylays your Website. Reply in the next eight hours, PD>
