    Humor: Security is Important

    Them: Important user, NT box, lost admin password, sad, sad, sad.

    Me: No problem, change password with magic linux disk, offline NT password

    Them: No, no, no. Never work. NT secure. Get real.

    Me: Watch. (reboot)

    Them: Gasp! This floppy is dangerous! Where did you get it?

    Me: Internet. Been around forever.

    Them: How do we keep students from using this?

    Me: Can't. Migrate. Linux. Mac.

    Them: No, no, no. Just make NT safe.

    Me: Can't. NT inherently unsafe.

    Them: Must be safe. NT good. We have never seen problems.

    Me: You just saw one now.

    Them: No, no, no. NT good. Win2k better.

    Me: Win2k is NT. Same thing. Should I give this floppy to a student?

    Them: No, no, no. Give here.

    Me: Whatever. What do you want me to do?

    Them: Change admin password.

    Me: Fine. To what?

    Them: "p-a-s-s-w-o-r-d"

    Me: No, no, no.

    This conversation probably happened somewhere to someone at one time or another
    I can imagine the look on the guys face when he saw the 'magical Linux floppy'
