This is a question IT Support

Our IT support guy has been in the job since 1979, and never misses an opportunity to pick up a mouse and say "Hello computer" into it, Star Trek-style. Tell us your tales from the IT support cupboard, either from within or without.

Desktop lockdown
The college I was at decided to bolt the desktop PC's to the desks after one sprouted feet and left the premises one dark night... Anywoo, the orders we given, and the workmen left to the task.

Roundabout lunchtime the head of IT sauntered in to see how it was going, only to nearly crap himself upon discovering what the guys had done:

Take one long drill, drill one hole through the desk, drill one hole right through the middle of the (horizontal) desktop, and subsequently through the mother- and daughterboards, and fit long bolt through both. 10 PC's had already been secured thusly, never to boot again...

Only in South Africa, hey...
