    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good recent change with the new President, and finally a focus back on the Silicon Group, unfortunately a lot of business/marketshare has already been lost over the past number of years.

    Time for Mike Splinter to move on, and let Applied go back to being a growth company.
