Reminds me...

of when I was in the Army. I was qualified as a Regimental Signals Instructor, and I've got thirty halfwit Troopers sat in front of their terminals as we go through the ComBAT application for BLUEFOR tracking,plotting, etc, when one of the younger scroats puts his hand up and informs me that his isn't working properly.

I go over and check, and sure enough, there's some real lag issues and a weird response input - the mouse isn't moving quite right and keypresses seem to be wrong or delayed.

Took me a while to realise one of the other morons had unplugged that terminals keyboard / mouse and plugged his in (stupid long cabling because of the desk setups) and was responding as best he could to whatever he could see his mate doing.
