Quite honestly I was considering putting this in the "Issues" forum, considering the potential impact on peoples lives that this small work-around could have, and the impact that NOT having this workaround does have ...

The revolution starts here:

Memo To All Staff From Tech Support

Management has determined that there is no longer any need for network or software applications support. The goal is to remove all computers from the desktop by Dec. 31, 2005.

Instead, everyone will be provided with an Etch-A-Sketch. There are many sound reasons for doing this:

1. No OS problems.
2. No technical glitches keeping work from being done.
3. No more wasted time reading and writing emails.

But Pab, does it play music?

This new product excites and intrigues me, but what about viruses and spyware? Do etch-a-sketches come with security measures? I want to be sure that my documents won't just be picked up and shaken by anyone. Reassure me!

Your documents won't be just picked up and shaken by just anyone, jaq. If you need to leave your station, pick it up and shake it, and your secrets shall be secure. *nods reassuringly*
