Sheila -

   I think Dave is spot on,   Digital systems tend to further extend the
what one is already doing in some sense...so if the system is broken putting
its Information Process into a Computer would leave it that way......   I do
think this is a mater of clear cut, orderly administration.... the Advantage
with using a computer to do it, is that once one manages to fully secure the
systems....it ends to stay that way......   I.e one does not need to worry
that next time it will somehow be different......  Once programmed into the
systems It is very cheap to do full very though auditing, that one needs to
only program once.......
