I would fire some employees
If our network wiring looked like that, I would fire the network manager. Heaven help you if you had to trace a cable. Whoever did that had no idea about network cabling.

So what happens if you kick off the touch pad or otherwise dislodge or remove it? What does it expose? Something a wrench/spanner can manipulate? Something a screwdriver can turn? If someone wants to get in to your house, they can and this lock will not stop them nor possibly even slow them down.
Oh and most burglars don't come in the front door. Most likely they would use the other door, one they can drill or kick in as well. :(
Every week, every month we get patches for MSIE. By now you would think Redmond would have gotten the message that MSIE is far from what we need and is very buggy and wide open to hackers. They need to either make a mass fix of all the problems or get rid of it. While Firefox has its problems, they are nowhere as paramount or serious as MSIE. And Google Chrome may beat them both.
I cannot say that I would want my confidential data stored on their Google servers, where someone could hack into them and get it. I do not have internet connections many times but yet still can work on my work documents and reports off line. I do not see the point of having to have one OS to work online quickly and another to work off line in the absence of a network.
Can you REALLY depend on the Google servers being up 100% of the time? And what about companies that are on private networks and which prohibit visitors from being on-line without an act of Parliament?

XP does everything I need and it is compatible with all my software that I use for my job and my side company. Why in the world would I want Vista? There are so many bugs in it and with all the "security" I could never get anything done. Not to mention half my software did not work (was told to "update" my software to the tune of about US$1000) and devices did not work (aka "no drivers available" or "the driver will be released in two months").
"Windows XP SP3 does not bring significant portions of Windows Vista functionality to Windows XP."
If it did, I would have to go to Linux for my equipment. I have about as much chance of finding drivers there as in Vista. In fact, I would take Linux over Vista, no problem!!
Any extraterrestrial bunch coming here wouldn't stay. We have made too big a cock-up of our world and it would be too much for them to renovate it. Besides what we have done to our planet would most likely kill any extraterrestrials anyway. Of course, that just well may be why they stay away now...
I work for an office where "performance appraisals" are mandated to be given twice a year: mid-term and final. However, the mere fact it is mandated makes no difference since many of our workers don't get one at all. Many may get the final but no mid-term and some get finals. The whole process is a joke since the people who give them do not work with us and haven't a clue as to what we do in a year. They are people who stay on the phone and rarely join in daily activities.
I miss the days when I worked with a boss closely and he/she knew what I did and the job I did. As someone said, it is a check-box thing now, totally impersonal.
We all know data is never deleted. Once it is set on a computer, many copies will exist for any reason. The main reason is backup copies made daily. Our company has a year's worth of backups. Those can be copied into archives and those archives permanently archived. So in the end, we have over 1000 possible copies.
We as users of these "free" places should be aware that once we put out information, we lose the ability to know WHO sees it, who HAS it and WHERE in the universe it goes.
Deleting data went out years ago.
Every major data center in the world has backup records and so should eBay. I work for a major hospital system and we have backup records that go back a year. eBay should be able to find the missing records and restore them. If they don't have backup records, shame on them and they are flirting with disaster.
Who would need an OS that won't run many of your proprietary programs or programs you use for work or even you favorite programs? They are forcing you to line the pockets of the software developers because your current software will not run or runs begrudgingly and you have to buy the Vista version.
I bought a new laptop with Vista and it stayed locked up more than I used it. I removed Vista and reloaded my XP disk.
Micro$oft can keep Vista.
I don't think they can prosecute for someone telling the truth and discussing the shortcomings of software. If it is blatant misrepresentation that is another story but actual findings and experiences cannot be prosecuted. If they could, as a developer and evaluator of software, I would be under the jail by now.
Give it up Micro$oft !! Your product is so full of holes it's like Swiss cheese! Even your new flagship, VistA is full of holes and now you have more to patch.
If Linux would ever get a full line of drivers and popular applications would port over to Linux, I would switch in a moment and say "byb-bye Micro$oft".
How many times to people have to be told that organisations will never ask you for confidential and personal information in an email? That has been publicised too many times not to have everyone know it. I will never understand it.
I get phishing attempts regularly and just put them in the rubbish bin.
