The black and white version would be that engineer is the person that designs, builds and maintains machines. Not the guy that operates them. You wouldn't call your grandmother an "engineer" because she is operating her computer. Or every car driver, blender/toaster oven user.
Granted, there's the grey area where the operation of the machine is impossible without an intricate knowledge of the machine's design and/or the theory behind it; in those cases you need an engineer to operate it. But in most cases a technician is enough
Let the engineers do actual engineering and the world will be a better place.

How about Windows Server 2008 + Exchange + 100 CALs for both products?
I consider humour to be an important part of management, negotiations, sales and everything that involves other people. Of course as everything it needs to be taken in healthy doses.
It brings people closer much faster and that is very important when you want to know more about the person in less time, therefore an excellent tool to use in interviews.
I am sure she will. But I'm definitely teaching her that there are different ways of doing things, and sometimes they are more efficient, challenging or outright fun.
She most likely won't pursue a career in CS, but the value of hacking goes beyond that.
On a side note, I can't help noticing that my complaint is extremely similar to the ones I remember from the electronics enthusiasts in the 90s. Funny, it seems our time has come.
