I couldn't possibly tell you the computer's ID over the phone, I've been on A Course™

Re: I wish my users protected data like this efficient PA

Much as I hate to throw mud at another Mike, yes he was a bit of a dick. Complaining vociferously about users when they're not in earshot is fine - it's even to be encouraged to avoid situations where you lose your spanner on the phone with 'em. And changing the password to 'wanker' might not be worth the sack, but it's definitely worth a serious talking to ('don't be a fucking dick'); it's also completely pointless unless you keep a record of what users passwords are (which is pretty dumb).
