I don't get it. Why does a travel restrictions have to be an all-or-nothing proposition?

It's real bloody simple. Let medical staff, military, and those working directly to address the Ebola epidemic travel. Those that wish to travel for leisure or other business related reason, banned from doing so. Exceptions are if you wish to return home to Africa to be with your family, but knowing full well you can't leave until after the epidemic subsides.

Anything wrong with the proposed solution above?

Microsoft patch Tuesday is the 2nd of every month. After testing, they should be deployed and installed at least by Friday, and then rebooted that night or weekend for changes to take effect.

The problem isn't rebooting the PCs for security updates. The problem is rebooting PCs once a week to pro-actively address memory leaks. This is very bad and dangerous mindset for multiple reasons. I.e. LAZY! But most if all, it involves communication via IT to the rest of the staff which I rarely every see in the corporate world. Most IT departments of this SEP (Someone Elses Problem) view in which they themselves are abstracted from the very company that keeps them employed. That very notion should be a fireable offense IMHO.

I'd expect no better from an AC, but according to all the press I've read, he was self-monitoring multiple times a day and self-reported at the earliest onset of symptoms. "Attempted to murder" is a little more than extreme, IMO, considering he did everything right.

I'm sure all but the CxO's and executive, right?! God forbid if you have to be the IT grunt that has to explain data loss from a document that wasn't saved prior to them going home.

Yeah, rebooting PCs via automated scripts is both fucking lazy, and addresses the symptoms, not root cause.

For everyday work, an SSD help calm my aggression enormously. Nothing frustrates me more than having to wait on a machine that's capable of processing math billions of times faster than I ever could. There's no excuse for it. Now, test and working VMs run like a bat out of hell, and searching through content in Outlook is a breeze for reference lookup.

This better not be a hand-held unit. I can only imagine children getting ahold of this thing and playing around with it. Burning out the retina of your eye, thus rendering partial or total loss of vision would be tragic! No, they need to be in the form factor as as automatic stapler. Just slide the corner of a letter in the notch and it's good to go.
