I've noticed that there is a good portion of Sysaiders that believe in locking the USB ports. I think it is rather interesting, but understand the reason. USERS DON'T LIKE TO LISTEN WHEN WE SAY, "NOT EXTERNAL DEVICES" One of our policies says that nothing may be imported from an external source that has not been approved by the organization. Do you know how may times I remote into a computer and find a personal picture set as the desktop background? When we ask, "Where did that come from?" the typical responce is, "What do you mean?" Then a lecture about the security implications starts and we end up having to be the bad guys when we tell them to remove it from their computer. Most think that if they e-mail it to themselvs, then it is ok. That still counts as an unapproved external source. aaaarrrrgggghhhh It's enough to drive you mad. Only a small handfull of people are allowed to have such things, and they are the ones on top of the totem pole. We don't say anything to them. What's funny is that most of the higher ups prefer to lead by example and have the standard Windows provided backgrounds on their computers. I laugh and cry at the same time.
Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than in a whole one.
