Comment Re:No they won't. (Score 1) 419

The answer would be NO on all accounts, primarily because the purpose of most people in favor of gun control that I'm friends with is to remove all guns from society. Guns are the big scary spider, and they want them gone. To them, "common sense" laws are just stepping stones to eventual removal of all firearms.
Of course, this is until the big earthquake hits in California, to which a few of them have mentioned "We'll come to you, you have guns".
If such a situation occurs, I'm certainly not handing out firearms to people who have no clue as to gun safety other than having none. Though I'm sure that will be chalked up to hard heartedness, rather than an actual desire to see them not murder themselves.

And yet, Just yesterday I fixed a mac that "forgot where the printer is",
Last week one fell off the domain and lost it's IP address.
I've got a pallet of repair returns that refused to boot, just white screened then funny symbol.All went out for repair and except for ten or so had no software problems, just needed to be re-imaged.
They're not magical fairy devices, they're computers. Which screw up. PC or Mac.

Plus, did you really just ask what a Domain Controller is?

Comment Train them badly. (Score 1) 813

You simply train them poorly. Follow the letter of the law, but not the spirit. Shortcut for a process that'snot covered in official documentation but secure and widely used? They don't need to know. Have them do everything twice, as some manual somewhere requires. Teach them the most ponderous and difficult tool for gaining network information, and demand they employ it. Make them into slow, barely worthwhile employees.

Oh god. Life becomes a constant battle. I used to try to do this, and you find yourself analyzing everything . I eventually decided, like Kwerle, that it didn't matter. If the chef at a local restaurant is a rabid Stalinist, I don't really care as long as it doesn't influence the food quality or taste. Sometimes you just don't bring up differences that don't matter to the subject at hand.

Obviously there's a limit to this. If he posts a "no blacks allowed" sign in the window, then I'm not going in either
