Re: Reminds me of a contractor

Windows was good at that - I had an employee rename win.ini for some reason back in the old days. When win.ini doesn't exists Windows reported that every single file on the system was called win.ini ... the funny (and best part of this story) was that she requested all the original system and application install disks because "she wanted to verify and understand how the system (our standard 'customers' installation) was setup and configured" ... I gave her all the disks and watched her rebuild the system over a couple of days.

She learned a lot and because a damn fine customer support and installation engineer! There's always a silver lining to a cloud.
