Re: Printer Power

a new rule had been announced that only IT was allowed to procure IT equipment

Works the other way too. When IT decided that there were too many "personal" printers around and they couldn't bother supporting them and it would be cheaper to buy supplies if the printers were all the same, they decided that my particular outpost required just one printer for the whole building.

Fine in the main open-plan office, but there are two other offices some distance away - one down a flight of stairs. Cue some ill feeling towards IT from the people in those offices.
