I've got a green laser. It's cool to shine it outside at night, because it creates a very visible beam.
It's also very tempting to shine it at things, to see how far away I can see a reflection. Aircraft a certainly a tempting target, being both moving and fairly far away.

Where in Florida? Because we're going to sue *you*.
A good manual saves 80% of helpdesk time. A really good manual saves 90%.
Ikea manuals are really good. They even allow their products to be less logical in construction, resulting in lower production cost and lower transport cost on top of the lower helpdesk cost. The manual is a one time investment, the others are continuous.
The problem is that very few people read manuals, and the sort of IT-ish people who read
