Hey kids. I'm back. Catching up on email lists - I'm up to May. Been a
little... distracted.

Is the language verbatim that "syslog" must send the alerts, or that
they just need to be collected and stored? For example, Ci$co uses SDEE,
but I've never seen that fail a PCI audit.

I'd look it up myself, but my dog just farted on me and I need to get
away fast.
