LAN Manager was multiuser. The client wasn't but that doesn't make much difference as the non-multiuser smartphones phones using apps and websites today proves quite well.
I see turbidostato below made the same point.
OS/2 had networking (really good networking) and multitasking. Lan Manager (based on OS/2) as well as Novell (worked with OS/2) had file permissions. So they produced a product with those 3 facets.
Further, if this was in existence a few decades ago, perhaps we would have nipped Scientology in the bud before it landed in the UK.
If it were in existence ~1400 years ago, perhaps we would have nipped Islam in the bud.
If it were in existence ~2000 years ago, perhaps we would have nipped Christianity in the bud.
And I wonder how many readers agreed with my first line, then threw a shit-fit when they got to my second line.

That's probably what got the woman in the picture of 'only person to be directly hit by a meteor'.
What I don't get is the jump from: 1000 people were injured in Russia two years ago, to: because only one person was ever directly hit by a meteor therefore strikes should be of no practical concern.
A detection system for the size of meteor that can injur 1000 might yeild all kinds of interesting side discoveries and technologies beyond just being a detection system.
It went to Grand Jury and was no-billed.
A lawyer that can't work out a resolution for the issue at hand in TFA without going to jury trial is a fucking moron.
Take the pictures down; repost them all the day that the diploma is received.
Heck, use a smartphone to trigger that posting from the graduation ceremony
they couldn't possibly hope to recover the $100k+ in legal fees.
$100,000? That's just a tiny bit inflated. My legal fees for two felonies were slightly more than $5,000. It's not going to cost six digits to get judicial relief in a circumstance like this. It probably doesn't even get the lawsuit stage, a demand letter sent to the school district and reviewed by their attorney would probably suffice. "Yeah, we're going to lose this one. Wipe the student's record clean, tell him you're sorry, and move on."
There's plenty of stupidity in the American legal system to make fun of without making stuff up.
Though there was a good reason for the original compact Macs to discourage users from opening them up -- there were exposed high voltage monitor electronics in there which could give you a hell of a zap of not properly discharged.
The later all in one Macs of the 90s were better in that regard. Their user suitable parts (motherboard, drives) all were easy to get at, but the monitors and power supplies were fully enclosed.
It must have been the first Mac then. Hey, it's been a few years.
I worked at a Byte Shop in 1978-9 as their repair department
I remember belittling an Apple owner back then because he paid $50 to have a technician just like you re-seat a ram chip that had come loose after he moved. Otherwise to break the sticker and do it himself would mean no authorized dealer would be allowed to work on it for real repairs.
If big trucks actually had to pay their way, much of their cargo would move to trains.
Not on short and medium haul routes. My local grocery store does not have a rail spur serving it....
