bad words, offices are why

Fail. [the phone system died.]

No other error dialog boxes, system errors, etc, after the initial fail (previously reported), just choppy and metallic-sounding calls, as if the phone system were being invaded by robots from Mars while being eaten by rabid weasels.

Computer security policy, taken open-source:

From discussion elsejournal:

My workplace has an official policy that if you are away from your desk more than momentarily, your workstation must be locked.

This is backed up with the unofficial policy that someone who abandons their workstation and leaves it logged in is subject to their desktop being repapered at their neighbors' discretion.

There are some very entertaining wallpaper choices that people have lined up for the moment someone slips up.
