Sometimes we are the problem. We come up with bizarre ideas and then wonder why our software doesn't work smoothly or why we can't easily reconcile. Recently I've seen:

In that spirit I want to offer some suggestions on how to fix some common problems in GP that are usually policy related. Often the problem relates to setup decisions so it can be hard to undo those choices made long ago. Trust me, it's worth it.
