With all due respect Bill, it is not quite as easy to produce a
set of customer reassignment data as you would think, and there 
are ways of spot checking individual entries short of directly 
contacting them. You should be able to infer some of them; I'd
rather not directly outline how to fabricate the appropriate 
external supporting data.  You may be able to add reassignments
which aren't caught in spot checking, but you'd find it difficult
to create quantities of believable customers sufficient to move
your utilization in a major way.
